In December, 1899, I saw for the first time a copy of Science and Health, and took my first treatment for consumption. I had tried the best physicians in this province, including a specialist in Montreal, together with change of climate, but without success. My healing was slow, I was antagonistic, having no faith in Christian Science, and following a couple of weeks' treatment I would purchase and study all the books, pamphlets, etc., I could find that were against it. In this way I had to prove over and over again the power of Truth to destroy doubts and unbelief. However, I had nothing else to fall back upon, and this kept me at the investigation. After two years of this kind of work I decided to go to Boston and settle the question once and for all, whether or not Christian Science had a foundation of truth.

The town in which I live, although it has a population of twelve thousand, had not a single Scientist at that time, or any one who knew anything about it. My work, therefore, was all through reading. I became acquainted with a patient and loving practitioner in Cambridge, Mass., and arranged for treatment, and also to meet him for an hour every other day. I was honest in my desire to get at the truth, but it took over three weeks of incessant questioning before a slight glimmer of the truth in Christian Science was opened up to me. It came like a beam of light one morning. I had my questions all answered. I did not reach physical healing so quickly, but as the understanding has come slowly, and only by my coming out of and above tribulation, so has the healing. Still, from that day, I have not lost fifteen minutes from my business as publisher of a daily paper, on account of illness.
