Job said, "I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear; but now mine eye seeth thee;" and I can say that God has been revealed to me through the teachings of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. Christian Science came to me about two years ago, when I was in the depths of despair after years of suffering, though I had been under the care of many eminent physicians. With all due regard for those who treated me, I can only say they did the best they could, according to their knowledge. years of invalidism, the undergoing of many operations (to the extent of having some of the organs removed), which left me in a wretched state physically and mentally, with the prospect before me that another critical operation might be necessary, finally drove me, like a tired child, "to the arms of divine Love" (Science and Health, p. 322).
Prior to this I had taken up "mental science," which I learned was principally the exercise of will-power. Later, when in my weakened condition I found I had no will, no hope, I longed for the end to come which I believed would release me from physical suffering. At first I thought that Christian Science healing was the same as my former teaching, and I would not listen to the friends who advised me to try Christian Science; but the time came when I fully realized that I must seek first "the kingdom of God," and then I went to a Christian Science practitioner in tears, telling him that the doctors and surgeons had failed to cure me, and asking him if he could. His reply was, "No, not I; but I assure you that God can." I had treatment at once, which brought me rest and peace such as I had not known for days; and this convinced me that Christian Science was not will-power, nor hypnotism, but the result of scientific prayer. I continued treatment, studying every day as much as I was able. In three weeks I began to notice that I had no need for glasses, which I had been wearing for six years, and just previous to this I had been told by an eminent eye specialist that I must wear them constantly.
