A parable of frequent mention in Christian Science is that of the sower. How little we realize where the seed is dropped, and often the soils are of like conditions with those of the Master's parable. Five years ago, on the eve of departure for the West, seeking to regain health from a nervous breakdown, while down-town attending to some last preparations, a Scientist, with a plea for pardon for intrusion in my affairs, brought me the message of the healing to be found in Christian Science. In spite of the apology, the approach was resented, but it had been made in such a tender manner that my resentment was concealed.

I went my way heedless of the advice, and after arriving at the Colorado ranch discovered through correspondence that some of my dearest friends either were Scientists or interested in this new teaching. Six weeks later, upon my return to official life, I looked into the lives of these Christian Science friends, and found they reflected peace, health, and contentment. On every hand love greeted me, and joy was manifested that I was interested. My interest was, however, only apathetic, but whenever I attended any religious service it was at the Christian Science church; still this attendance was seldom, and I read none of the literature, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy being then unknown to me. But the little "seed" had been dropped, and with friendship its cultivator the days of sunshine were many.
