About twelve years ago I graduated from the Nurses Training School in Newburyport, Mass. After following my profession several years, I broke down from overwork. My physician said that I was worn out, both mentally and physically, so I gave up my work and put myself under his treatment. Although he was very kind and did all he could for me, I did not improve, and he suggested my going to a nervine asylum. I decided to do as he thought best, and I was there several months, but did not feel that I was gaining any, so I made another change. I went into the country among friends, where I had rest and pleasant surroundings, and while there I improved so that I was able to come home and start my work again in a small way. After working a little, the agony of mind returned; I seemed in despair; "the cloud hung thick around me, darkening the light of day." Still I kept on with my work, though feeling that did not get relief soon I should be obliged to give it up again. I knew that I could get no help from materia medica, and my heart cried out, Where can I go for help? when out of the silence a still, small voice whispered "Christian Science." and I grasped the thought as a drowning man would grasp at a straw.

I had heard very little of Christian Science, and nothing favorable, but I felt that it was my last resort, and I said, I will try it. Before many hours had elapsed I went to see a practitioner. She had talked with me only a little when the clouds seemed to separate and I saw a ray of light. Before I left her office I had put myself under treatment. I took Science and Health to read, and soon the clouds rolled away and the sun shone for me once more.

I began at once to attend the meetings when my work would allow. It was not long before I united with the church in this city and later with The Mother Church. I gradually stopped nursing under materia medica. I have been healed of a number of ailments, among which are neuralgia and canker in the mouth, with which I had suffered from childhood. My heart goes out in gratitude to God, and to Mrs. Eddy, through whom this wonderful truth has been revealed to the world.
