Drs. Mary and David Paulson founded and built up the work of the Hinsdale Sanitarium in the Hinsdale suburb of Chicago, Illinois. Earlier Dr. David had been an instructor in the American Medical Missionary College at Battle Creek, Michigan and in 1899 he had taken charge of Battle Creek Sanitarium’s medical missionary work in Chicago. 

Drs. Lauretta and Daniel Kress labored first at the Battle Creek Sanitarium and then were instrumental in establishing the Church’s health work in England, New Zealand, and Australia. In 1907 they returned to the United States where Dr. Daniel became the first medical superintendent of the newly established Washington Sanitarium and Hospital. 

Because of the important leadership roles played by these two physician couples, they both received direct communications from the Lord’s servant Ellen White. Their collection of such personal letters, as well as copies sent to them of letters directed to other individuals, make up this present publication. There are 191 entries from Dr. Paulson’s collection and 43 from that of Dr. Kress.

“AGAIN REPRESENTATIONS HAVE been made to me that all who have the care of the sick, in our sanitariums, should bear in mind that these institutions are established for a special work, and are to be conducted in a way that will bring honor to God. . . . “You are to depend much more than you have done on the cooperation of the Great Physician in the work of healing disease. Your faith is to lay hold upon the efficacy of Christ to make effectual the effort put forth for the recovery of the sick. . . . “I have been shown that the principles that were given us in the early days of the message are to be regarded as just as important by our people today as they were then. There are some who have never followed the light given us on the question of diet. It is time now to take the light from under the bushel, and let it shine forth in clear, bright rays. . . . “As a people, with all our profession of health reform, we eat too much. Indulgence of appetite is the greatest cause of physical and mental debility, and lies largely at the foundation of feebleness and premature death. Intemperance begins at our tables, when we use an unwise combination of foods. Let the individual who is seeking to possess purity of spirit, bear in mind that in Christ there is power to control the appetite.” The Paulson Collection, p. 2-3, June 19, 1908
