If I could express even a small part of my gratitude and love for Christian Science, and to our Leader, who has made it possible for me to live and not die, I should, indeed, be very happy. One of the most beautiful things about my Christian Science experience has been its ever-ready answer to my questions; and I should like to give a little example in illustration of what I mean by this.

We go in the summer to a beautiful mountainous region where people sojourn for the climbing. At the time of which I am about to speak, my mother and I were the only Christian Scientists among the guests at the hotel. The question came to me one day, as to how it would be if, in my climbing, I should meet with an injury on the mountains, which might prove severe. I had the remembrance of a very badly sprained ankle from an accident which had befallen me a few years previous to this time, when it was a month before I could again walk out. I had no understanding of Science at that time.

One day, a party of us had been on the mountain; and returning, we were making speed, for it was then quite late, and we had still a mile and a half to go before reaching our hotel. I was running down the path, when suddenly I made a misstep, wrenching my instep in precisely the same way which had caused me such suffering before. After recovering myself from the fall, I tried to go on; but I immediately recognized the pain and the faintness which had been features of the former accident as they again came sweeping over me.
