Before April, 1908, I had attended the Wednesday evening meetings of Second Church of Christ, Scientist, in this city for over a year, but never thought of going on Sunday, and never found (seemingly) to read that wonderful book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," as I do now, although it lay the library table all the time. The meetings seemed to give me something to think about, as I was sure that the good people who told of their healings were speaking the truth, and I was becoming interested and began to think that Christian Science was what I wanted. Before this time I could never become sufficiently interested in any church to want to attend once a week, but now I feel that I cannot afford to miss a Sunday service or a Wednesday meeting. I love to go, and I can feel the love that surrounds me there at every meeting.

During the month mentioned above, Christian Science was given a severe test (at least in our eyes), and not found wanting, when our four-year-old boy was healed of a serious attack of throat trouble. (He had previously been healed of a skin disease, but I thought that it was just a "coincidence.") When he complained of his throat and fever was coming on, we realized that something had to be done at once, and as this was our first time to call for help since being interested in Science, I remarked to my wife, "Here is our chance to try Christian Science. Shall we use medicine, or call for a practitioner?" The latter was decided on, and how thankful we have been ever since. The child was treated in the evening and the next afternoon he was playing, the fever all gone and the danger-line passed. With a few more treatments he was himself again, with no bad effects afterward with the exception of a cough, which was overcome later. A close friend, a Christian Science nurse, with many years' previous experience in hospitals, afterward told us that this case was one of the worst which she had ever seen in her experience.
