My Dear Brother:—Before starting in on my afternoon work, I am going to make good my promise to you, and write you a little of my doings while here.
I took charge of this railroad property February I, and, to mortal sense, found everything very inharmonious; the employees were at war with one another and with the employees of the railroads they did business with; the owners were very much dissatisfied with the service being given, etc. It took just two days to demonstrate that all is harmony in God's domain, and since that time, everything has moved along as beautifully as the most exacting could desire. The employees are at peace with one another and with their connections; the work is being done with less delay than ever, and time for doing a particular piece of work, cut down fully seventy-five per cent; the earnings have increased and the expenses decreased, so that for the first seven months the net result from operation shows an increase of sixty-two per cent as compared with the same period of the preceding year.
Shortly after taking charge, one of my men complained to me of pneumonia; said he was coming down with it fast, and must stop work and go home. I immediately declared the Truth for him; he did not go home and he forgot all about his claim. I found that he was an old engineer, had been run over by his engine, all his ribs crushed in, for eighteen months had lain in a plaster cast, and for the last six years had worn a steel jacket to hold him up; suffered, to mortal sense, from every change in the weather and could breathe only in his throat. He was healed entirely in two treatments, took off his jacket, and since that has been a warm advocate of the Truth as now demonstrated through Christian Science.
