Probably ninety per cent of our Christian Science literature falls into the hands of those who as yet know little of this new-old healing truth. From the time I was fifteen until I was nearly thirty, I proved to the entire satisfaction of all, especially the medical faculty, the truth of Mrs. Eddy's statement that sickness is the result of sin. I became interested in Christian Science about four years ago, through a young man who saw that I was in need of "a cup of cold water" and who was not afraid to give it to me. I sent home for my Bible, and found the marker in Hebrews, where I had stopped reading a daily chapter nearly fifteen years before, although I had been a constant church-goer and took more or less interest in missions.

I am an engineer and have been out of employment on several occasions. At one such time I read Science and Health almost all day for several weeks, as I had nothing else to do and had not read the book before. One evening, as I was sitting at a hotel table, a telegram was telephoned to me from an entirely unknown quarter; and on three occasions since then, work has turned up for me almost as soon as it was convenient to accept it. I have been entirely healed of catarrhal trouble for which I had tried many remedies, but the principal things that I have been helped to overcome are the thoughts and faults that I then did not know were the cause of my sicknesses. I was plainly in need of a cup of cold water, but the young man who had the courage to give it to me would never have done so had not Mrs. Eddy had the courage to say that sickness is the result of sin. I have not taken any medicine in the past three years, and although my healing has been slow I am learning that health comes as we cease sinning.
