My coming into Christian Science was through great suffering. From a child I was never strong, and as I grew older I became what the doctors pronounced a hopeless invalid. I lived under this law of materia medica many years, sometimes able to be dressed and about the house, and often months would pass that I could not be on my feet at all. My case was in the hands of the best physicians in the state. I consulted specialists as well, and the verdict was invariably the same,—I would perhaps live many years but could never be well.

During one of the seasons of prostration to which I have referred, a friend who is a strong Christian Scientist, called to see me. She told me something of the truth, said I need not suffer, that I could be well in a short time, all I need do was to give up my physician and accept Christian Science treatment. Her words fell on deaf ears. Give up my physician! Perish the thought! I see now how I rejected the "cup of cold water" given in Christ's name, and clung to personality and material remedies.
