Dawn of a New Hope

Some seven years ago I began to investigate Christian Science. For three or four years previous the subject had forced itself into my consciousness through various cases of healing among my acquaintances. These were not nervous or hysterical cases, and some of them were cases of long standing. One of these was that of a married lady who had not walked for many years, the daughter of an eminent physician. A few treatments completely restored her, and the following year she made a tour of Europe with her husband. This demonstration interested me very much, and every time I thought of it something within said, "Investigate." But for a long time I resisted this appeal from the "still, small voice," because I was not yet ready for this precious Truth which heals and saves.

About this time I secured the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and began its perusal. My first impressions of the book were not favorable, but I was determined to give it a fair hearing, and as I persistently continued the investigation, the light soon began to dawn. I want to say here that I did not undertake the investigation simply to get relief from physical suffering although I had been a mild sufferer from several chronic ailments for years, but I took up the study mainly because I was very much dissatisfied with the life I had been living for the previous quarter of a century. It was not satisfying. I longed for that peace which passeth understanding, but which I had not found.
