From the time I was ten years old I suffered from spasms of the stomach, which kept growing more severe, and twice I had hemorrhages from the stomach, so that I seemed to be on the brink of the grave. I was in bed for a long while, had to be very strict in my diet, and tried innumerable remedies without being healed. In spite of all that was done, the condition grew worse all the time, till in the spring of 1908 I could not retain any kind of food. Another specialist then took my case, who prescribed absolute rest. For about eight weeks I abstained entirely from solid food, and kept in a reclining position, but the moment I began to move about the old pain would return, until I almost despaired of ever getting well again.

One day the book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and a few copies of the Herold were sent to me by my sister who lives in Berlin. She asked me to read the literature carefully, and said she knew that I would be helped, if I were to accept the truth. I had never before heard of Christian Science, but I was so struck by what I read, feeling as if it all rad been written especially for me, that I can say I became well instantaneously. For the first time in a long while I felt hungry again, and ate what was set before me for supper. I cannot remember ever having eaten with such a good appetite, and after that I ate all kinds of food without any ill effects. I felt very well for several months, when I had a relapse, which was probably due to my not having continued to study as I should have done, and I had to apply for help to a practitioner. Absent treatment was given, the Scientist lovingly and untiringly pointing out to me my faults, and gradually I dropped the errors which were besetting me.
