Irving C. Tomlinson, who worked closely with Eddy for a number of years, later recalled that "Christian Science activities in the prisons greatly interested Mrs. Eddy…. Her interest in prison work never flagged."2 Indeed, she was familiar with prison work from early childhood.

...
In 1900 Eddy strongly encouraged Irving Tomlinson to visit the jails around Concord and was very keen to hear his reports from it. Tomlinson writes in his reminiscence: "One of her early talks with the writer after his arrival in Concord concerned the unfortunates in the county jails and state prison. At her earnest request, the writer visited Sheriff Edgerly of the County and made the proposition to hold on each Sunday at two o'clock in the afternoon in the Merrimac County jail a Christian Science service for the prisoners. The Sheriff welcomed the plan .…"7 Eddy's response to the plan was enthusiastic: "I am glad you have begun the C.S. Mission with faith that you can open the prisondoors and set free the captive. God will bless you in this way of His appointing."8
Services were held from 1900 to 1906; Tomlinson also served as a practitioner, praying for the inmates when they requested spiritual help during the week. As a result of his work, many of the prisoners had healings and sent their thanks and testimonies to Eddy, who sent them on to be published in the Christian Science periodicals. Tomlinson recalled how in March 1907 a newly released prisoner came to Tomlinson and asked to purchase a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Tomlinson offered to give him one, but the man declined, saying that he had saved money while in prison so that he could pay for a copy. Tomlinson reported that he never committed another crime. When Tomlinson relayed the incident to Eddy, she was deeply moved.9
