Twelve years ago, I read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"...

Twelve years ago, I read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I read it through with criticism, and made notes and citations, and I frankly confess that I rejected its teaching then, without understanding it. Myself and family remained with the adherents of materia medica another six years, when a case of croup brought the doctor to our home at two o'clock in the morning, and she remained with us for seven hours, giving medicine every fifteen or twenty minutes. For several days the cough, medicine, caution, and fear held us in bondage; in fact, the remainder of the winter was passed in fear and trembling.

During the summer we found it necessary to consult a Christian Science practitioner for our penury and woe. We began to read and study, in accordance with the instructions of our guide, and as much as possible to "fear no evil." The following winter (now five years ago), the same child awakened us one night with symptoms precisely the same as those of the year before. We telephoned to the Christian Science practitioner and stated the conditions to her. She replied: "All right. Do not have any fear for the child, and I will go to work." These words are as music to us every time the experience is recalled. We obeyed her instructions, and in the morning we found that both the croup and our fears were gone. From that time to the present Christian Science has been our stay alway.
