From the October 1965 issue of The Christian Science Journal

At times one is lulled into stuffy complacency regarding something which is precious and extremely valuable. The Christian Science Sentinel is rich in value, holding in store satisfying spiritual adventure for eager, hungry readers whose hearts are full of gratitude and expectancy of good.

One day a little kindergartner who had been in the habit of taking something home to his mother from school each day found himself without the usual present for her. On passing a Christian Science literature distribution box in front of the corner drugstore, he helped himself to a Sentinel. Giving it to his mother, he said that he had taken it from a "mailbox," whereupon she remonstrated with him.

At this point his older brother came in and remarked that if she would look on the cover she would see the words "Free Sample." She then accepted the "gift" from her wee son and promptly put it aside on the magazine table. A few days later, feeling tired after several hours of demanding home duties, she decided to sit down for a few moments' rest and casually picked up this copy of the Sentinel.
