In an article in The Christian Science Monitor, these words occur: "There is something that can be done; we do not have to fold our hands and be resigned to error." This sentence seems to sum up for me the special message that Christian Science first brought me, over three years ago. The idea of a real way out, and that there always is a way out of every seemingly evil impasse, came to me as a ray of hope in great need. I was suffering from an illness diagnosed as a serious intestinal disorder, and after naming the disease the doctor seemed to be able to do nothing more for me at all. I had the best advice to be had, both in England and on the continent; I had gone through endless régimes, treatments, and "cures," and was finally resigned to taking a very drastic and tiresome "cure" every year, in the faint hope of regaining a measure of health. I had resigned myself to a life of invalidism, living for months in different health resorts abroad, with a hospital nurse and a devoted maid. I was inactive, useless, and unhappy, with every sort of discord in my life and my body.

One day a relative of mine cut out of a daily paper and sent me the letter of an English lady whose complaint was the same a my own, only in an even worse degree, and who stated that Christian Science had cured her in a few weeks. I was feeling pretty hopeless by then; the last specialist I had seen in Paris having told me that I might get better "with luck," but that he knew of no remedy other than those I had tried and found useless. Every known article of food had, I think, at different times been forbidden me, except a baked apple, though why this remained always unbanned I cannot say. So I was ready to jump at any chance of help, and I jumped at Christian Science, to find it not a mere venture, but a rock, a sure foundation. I returned to London, saw the writer of the letter, decided to take Christian Science treatment, and was benefited almost at once by the healing of pain and sleeplessness. Some manifestations of the old ills have been stubborn, they seemed to be tenaciously rooted in my mind as realities, but in spite of this I have long since been enabled to live a happy, healthy, active life, doing more and experiencing less fatigue than before all the false dream of illness.
