Many years ago, while living in Illinois, I became quite anxious over the colds which I was having continually, and was told I must do something or I would have to give up my work. About this time a Christian Science practitioner came from the East to visit relatives. I went to see her, and was healed in one week's treatment. I was very happy and grateful for the wonderful change, but I heard nothing more of Christian Science for ten years. During these years I came to Massachusetts. Calling upon a friend one day she loaned me a Christian Science Journal and told me that I could get "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy from the public library. I never shall forget the first time I read Science and Health! It surely opened a new world to me.

We have had trials as well as victories, but Christian Science has been our help in all ways in a household of four. I lovingly acknowledge my indebtedness to Christian Science, to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, and above to all to God, the giver of all good.
