About fourteen years ago, my husband and I studied Science and Health for some time, and decided that the selling of drugs, in which business he was engaged and had spent ten years of hard study and practice, was not practical for us, nor suited to our advancement in the study of Christian Science.

It was some time before we could in any way dispose of the drug stock. There was a constant declaration of error, from friends and our own thought that there was no other way for us, that a knowledge of drugs completed our store of wisdom, and was our only source of supply. We moved from the small town in which we were then located, and commenced to search for work. Every time an engagement presented itself that offered a sufficient salary to meet our requirements, it was a drug store, which, in every instance, held some unusual inducement. After two weeks of this search a position was accepted, with a very meagre salary, only half of what the other positions had offered.

This was followed for three months, then another situation which promised better called for a trial, but did not stand the test. But this time we were both convinced that our living did not have to come from the selling of drugs. We were daily reminded that "The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof."
