It is about sixteen years since I first heard of Christian Science

It is about sixteen years since I first heard of Christian Science. It came to me in answer to an earnest desire for health and strength. For six years I had been an invalid, confined to my bed the greater part of three years I was very susceptible to draughts and dampness, and had become a member of that class called incurables. The doctors said that I could live but a short time. My suffering at times was intense.

When the practitioner came to me I had heard of some wonderful cures being effected without medicine and by means of Christian Science. She explained briefly that it was God who did the healing, and gave me a few instances of cure. I wish never to forget the joy and spiritual uplifting of that first treatment. All fear of suffering left me. The physical manifestation gradually disappeared, and in a few months I had better health than ever before. In three weeks I was able to go out in any weather (it was in November) without taking cold. Soon after my healing, I, with a number of others, had class instruction from a student of Mrs. Eddy.
