I came to the study of Christian Science with a great desire for rest and peace of mind, and although my progress seems to be slow, I am finding them. In our "passage from sense to Soul" (Science and Health, p. 566), we seem to be like trees, grim and gaunt through the dreary winter, yet silently getting ready for the touch of sunlight and spring to burst the buds, and give a sense of freedom. With warmth and sunshine, the leaves unfold, and with still more of the warmth and sunshine of Love comes the blossom, then the fruit, and the leaves give shelter to all who desire it. I wish to add my thanks to Mrs. Eddy for showing us the only way to harmony.

What first attracted my attention to Christian Science was the complaints of the clergy that it was taking some of their best women workers out of their churches, while the doctors complained that they were losing some of their best and most profitable patients. These things set me thinking and led me to attend Christian Science meetings. About that time, when calling on an old-time general manager of one of the leading railroads, a hard-headed, rough man, who formerly had a habit when things didn't suit him of swearing till everything was blue, I noticed Mrs. Eddy's book on his desk, and being surprised I asked him if he was interested in it. He replied, "Fifty years ago I swore that I would never enter another church, and I never did till I blundered into one of their meetings, but now I never miss a meeting, it is the only religion I have ever seen that has appealed to my intelligence."
