I had been in an isolated place for many months

I had been in an isolated place for many months. The novelty of camp life five thousand feet above the sea-level, with the Rocky mountains in sight, had tempted me to separate myself temporarily from former associations and surroundings, a little girl nine years old being my only companion. While perfect health was realized, interest in the experience was unflagging, but one day I was taken with an alarming condition of the bowels, which continued for weeks, growing first better and then worse. Absent treatment in Christian Science failed to remove the trouble, though I was wonderfully sustained and felt calm and confident; but the time came when I felt I could not attend to the duties of camp life another day. I decided to pack my trunk and go to Denver, the nearest large city, that I might avail myself of present treatment and the care that from a human standpoint seemed absolutely necessary.

As I started to pack my trunk, the thought came to me, clearer than ever before, "All that you can find of Love anywhere, is right here." I walked to the door and looked out across the lonely expanse of country. There appeared no chance of my human need being met there, and I was too weak to make any further effort to help myself, while the packing of the trunk and the trip to Denver seemed impossible; but slowly over the hill came a covered carriage in which were two ladies, one of whom I had met before, the other a stranger. To make a long and beautiful story short, the stranger was a Christian Scientist who had been away on a trip, and having just returned to the country, had driven out to see me.
