HELP IN TIME OF NEED

In Science and Health (p. 301) Mrs. Eddy tells us: "Few persons comprehend what Christian Science means and by the word reflection," and it was, as I understand, by means of "reflection" that I obtained the result to which I refer below.

In January, 1907, I was engaged to demonstrate what might be done with dye-stuffs to improve the rug-making carried on at the Morgan Memorial Cooperative Stores and Industries of Boston, Mass. The ability to undertake the word required was in itself a demonstration of the mightly power of Christian Science to heal. One year before (1906) I had been suffering from irritation of the spinal cord, and doomed to perpetual pain by the physicians, with no permanent relief. Now I was well, free from all suffering, able to go where I pleased and do what I pleased, capable of enduring hardship and fatigue. This improvement had come, in the first instance through Mrs. Eddy's thought as given in Science and Health, without the aid of a practitioner; so that I asked beyond doubt that the power was of God. Later I asked help from a Christian Scientist in Boston, to whose wise counsel and constant admonition I owe more than words can tell. Owing to the condition of affairs at the Morgan Memorial at the time, my dye-shop was in the basement, and all my equipment was crude and commonplace, nevertheless I was able to work there in the coldest weather and on the hottest days. Here I made the necessary experiments, and turned Out forty to sixty yards of carpet each day, dyed to order—sometimes to shade—with my own hands, and preferably without help.
