Many times I have been on the point of sending a few words to our Sentinel, with the hope that my experience might help some other weary one through the discouragement, discontent, unhappiness, and darkness of unbelief through which I passed before knowing of the blessed truth of Christian Science. Surely I have reason to rise up and call our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, "blessed," but it is because words seem so inadequate to express what I feel, that I have kept silent so long.

It is just five years since I began to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. This book had been loaned me by a friend, as at that time I thought I never could spend the money needed for a copy, now I know that if I could not get another, no amount of money could buy mine. Fifteen years ago I started out to earn my own living. I felt that six days of the week were enough in which to perform my duty, and the seventh I could not give to anything so unprofitable as going to church—for to me it seemed unprofitable; consequently, for ten years I was scarcely inside a church, although up to that time I had been a regular attendant—I suppose because I had been brought up to go and to feel that it was the proper thing to do; but as for any practical help, there was none.
