When I began to read The Christian Science Journal...

When I began to read The Christian Science Journal I thought it must be the truth, but I was afraid that if I accepted Christian Science I would have to give up my dear orthodox church, so I laid the literature aside and expected never to have anything more to do with it. Four years later, after having for several months taken care of a lady who was considered a nervous physical wreck, I myself was taken to a hospital suffering from severe nervous prostration.

This seemed a very dark hour to me, and I turned to my Bible for solace and comfort, with the thought, I believe that God can make me well. My Bible opened to the ninth chapter of St. John, and, after earnest reading, I felt within my consciousness that somehow I was healed, and that whereas I had been blind, now I could see that God was indeed the Great Physician who healeth all our diseases and cureth our infirmities. When the doctor came in, I unwisely told him of my beautiful experience, thinking that he would be as glad as I was, but, to my amazement, he looked at me very seriously and said, "If you go to studying Christian Science you will lose your mind, and I shall not permit you to go home until you have gone through a course of treatment here." He evidently thought I had already lost my mind, as he immediately called the leading physician of the medical staff to examine me.
