a course of lessons from one of our teacher's students.
Now I am only trusting that the time will come when I
may be enabled to teach others the way of Truth, as well
as to add to the many demonstrations God has given
me. — E. D. S.
A student of Christian Science was employed in the
Massachusetts State Prison at Charlestown, to teach the
prisoners to make shoes. He carried his copy of "Science
and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and the Journal
with him, and as he had the opportunity would tell the
men what this wonderful truth could do for them, set-
ting them free in a larger and higher sense than they had
We make extracts from a number of letters that one
of the prisoners has written to those who are interesting
themselves in this work.
"Editor of The Christian Science Journal: — At the
prison, once a week, there are Christian papers given
to the inmates. But none of those papers point out so
clearly the fallibility of the mortal or carnal mind, and
the infallibility of the divine Mind, as does the teaching
of Christian Science.
"I was strangely blind and stupid. I loved sin, and
it seemed as though I never would be able to forsake it.
I did everything that would be expected of one entirely
ignorant of God.
"I also had a complication of diseases. I could not
begin to describe the medicines I have taken.
"I no longer look for material treatment, but hum-
bly seek for the divine assistance of Jesus, through the
way Christian Science has taught me. I am, indeed,
an altered man. I now have no more doubt of the
way of salvation than I have of the way to the prison
"I am very grateful to the students of Christian Science,
for the interest they have taken in me and my fellow-
prisoners. Their letters and books have been of great
profit, and in accordance with their wish I have done what
I could for the others.
"I gave the Journal to every man who would accept
it, and related my experience to those who would listen.
