I became interested in Christian Science about ten years ago, through a copy of The Christian Science Journal which was loaned me by a friend, who also induced me to accompany her to one of the meetings, which at that time were held at a private house by a small band of workers in Dresden. My interest was aroused, and I continued to attend the testimonial meetings, as well as the Sunday services, as I was greatly uplifted and encouraged by what I heard and always came away with a feeling of joy for which I could find no words.

At that time I was far from being well. Some two years previously I had fallen from a high step-ladder, injuring myself badly. Following this accident, I began to feel very ill, and a physician was called who stated that I had sustained internal injuries which would necessitate an operation. To this I objected, declaring to my husband that I would rather suffer the pain, and the doctor was accordingly discharged, as he said that he could do nothing further for me. Massage, together with a cold-water treatment, was then given a trial, and for a time this afforded me some relief; but I always felt weak, and could not walk or attend to any of my duties. At this epoch my attention was called to Christian Science. I purchased a copy of the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and began to study it by reading a few chapters every day, and to my great joy all my ailments gradually ceased. I could hardly conceive that by simply reading this book I had become quite a new woman. Since then I have enjoyed better health than ever before.
