Benefits Received from the Study of Science and Health

Since studying "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, among other errors that have been destroyed is the fear of death, from which I suffered severely, it having come upon me at an early age. But I now have the assurance of eternal life, knowing that "Mind alone possesses all faculties, perception, and comprehension; and is not at the mercy of organization and decomposition" (Science and Health, p. 484).

The predisposition to catch cold has also been overcome. This error always found me an easy victim, often keeping me in bondage until the uttermost farthing was paid.

When coming from the West to live in this lovely semitropical state of Florida, as months passed on I became regularly subjected to malaria, rheumatism, headache, chills, fever, and sometimes dengue or break-bone fever. I was also fearful of catching the yellow fever, should the proper authorities announce the appearance of that dreaded germ. Preparation was always made in mind beforehand where I could be comfortably located in the pine woods, as I then believed, as many do now, that the aroma from these trees would protect from the disease by destroying the germ.
