This skin infection was prevalent throughout the battalion, and materia medica was recommended to me; but I never felt tempted to resort to it because of the sense of freedom I had gained through the Christ, Truth, previous to this time. Instead, I turned to the textbooks, the Bible and Science and Health, and earnestly sought a solution to this problem.
