I first took up the study of Christian Science during the summer of 1907, and I am happy to say that in that short time I have learned more from its teachings of what life really is than in all my previous study. I came to Christian Science first of all for physical healing, and the results were such as left no doubt in my mind as to the truth of its teachings.

I had taken medicine for nearly thirty years for one disease alone; indeed the doctor had told me that same week that I could not possibly do without it, but I was healed of that particular ailment with one treatment in Christian Science. This in itself was sufficient to show me that there was something very grand and good about it and I determined to look into it for myself. That was in June, 1907, and in July I was laid up with an attack of bronchial trouble, which was met and overcome in a few days by absent treatment. I had been subject to this complaint for forty years, and had suffered tortures almost beyond endurance with material remedies, including blisters, etc. Let any one imagine the condition of the body after such treatment, and compare it with the quiet and prayerful treatment of Christian Science. Is it any wonder, after I had caught the tiniest glimpse of its beautiful teachings, that I was willing to accept a Christianity which treats every case of sickness so lovingly and overcomes it through the power of Truth.
