A burning desire to express my unspeakable gratitude to God, also to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for Christian Science, impels me to write these lines. Devout as a child in attending Sunday school and church, I had grown up to question God and man, because of the unloving attitude of the majority of worshipers with whom I had come in contact. Then began a series of "isms,"—atheism, spiritualism, vegetarianism, etc., none of which proved satisfactory.

I had heard of Christian Science at odd times,—heard of the healing done,—but had never conversed with a Scientist. In December, 1909, I felt I had come to the end of all things. For months I had been battling with a problem which nothing seemed to touch. Again and again I had gone out into the fields and cried aloud to God for help, but none came, till one day the words Christian Science suddenly rang in my ears, and I, who in the past had shrugged my shoulders at the mention of it, now found myself harboring the thought that if Christian Scientists can do what they claim, namely, heal, then surely they have the key to the situation, and I at once wrote to a friend who had been healed in Science for the address of a practitioner. I was in Scotland and the practitioner in London, but soon we were in communication, and on the first day of the year 1910, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy reached me.
