IN GRATEFUL ACKNOWLEDGMENT

I was the weakly one of the family, and the ordeals of school life, teaching, disappointments, and an injury received on the school ground culminated in invalidism. For twelve years I kept my bed, excepting that during two years of that time I was able to be wheeled in a chair and go about the room hanging on crutches. But after that, for three years before I found Christian Science, I was quite bedfast.

I was very hopeful, and clung to the conviction that something would cure me. I had lost faith in medicine, and quit its use. The hardest trial came just before the dawn. My sight was nearly put out, and for fifteen months I had to lie in a dark room. No one knows the awfulness of this condition unless he has experienced it. During the last two years of my invalidism I struggled constantly for divine healing; was sometimes better, but afterwards worse than ever.
