I did not think when I used to throw aside the papers with the testimonies that my wife gave me to read and say they were a pack of lies and fairy tales and I not believe a word of them, that I would some day be adding my testimony to the great work that our Leader has done for us and mankind. I do not suppose any one ever fought against Science harder than I did.

My wife had been a great sufferer and our doctor had ordered me to take her to the mountains where we heard of Christian Science through the wife of the hotel keeper. Up to that time we were nothing more than atheists without God or hope in the world. When she told me she had put herself in the hands of a Christian Science practitioner I thought she had gone crazy, and told her so. At the start she had very little confidence in it herself, but as the truth dawned upon her, she asked me to stop my ridicule, as she had found what she had not found in any other creed that she had investigated, — a loving God.
