It is difficult to find words in which to express my gratitude for all that Christian Science has done for me. A new sense of life has been given me. "Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it." For the joy, peace, happiness, purity, health, abundance of good which it has brought to me, I am deeply grateful,—grateful to God for giving us this truth through our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, in our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

Twelve years ago I entered a hospital in San Francisco to be trained as a nurse. After graduating I spent a year in private nursing, and then went to New York for a course in a special line of nursing. After eight months I returned to my home in southern California, where I did private nursing until three and a half years ago, when I broke down utterly. I sought help in various ways and at the end of five months was able to be around, though unable to work. I then went to visit relatives in Leavenworth, Kan., thinking the change would benefit me. I stayed six months, but was still unable to take up my profession. Divine Love then led me back to California, to dear cousins who were Christian Scientists. They had previously told me of Christian Science. I thought it beautiful, but was not ready to give up all my material remedies and rely absolutely on the Great Physician to heal me. But after failing to regain my health and strength from medicine or change of climate, I was finally ready to try Christian Science, and a few days after my return to California I commenced treatment. My healing was slow, but in six months I could do much work and in a year could do all that came to me.
