It was in the fall of 1904 that I first attended a Christian Science meeting, going as a guide to my mother, who is a Scientist and who was then visiting me. I became interested in the teaching at once, as I had for many years been an earnest worker in an orthodox church, and often had pondered the lack of logic in its teachings; but in Christian Science I found a reasonable explanation of the Bible, and many a clouded question was soon illumined by the light of Truth as revealed in Science and Health. I was at that time, and had been for sixteen years, a sufferer from hemorrhoids. I had used almost every known remedy, besides having been treated by a physician, finally going to a well-known hospital, where I was told that nothing but an operation could cure me. I was trying to arrange for this when Christian Science found me, and I think it was at the third meeting I attended that I was healed of the hemorrhoids, during the reading from the desk of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I felt the ailment pass away, and have not been troubled with it since.

I had been a sufferer from biliousness accompanied by severe headaches ever since my boyhood days, but during the study of our text-book, and the application of its teachings as I understood them, this discord, too, disappeared. Then the smoking habit, of twenty years' standing, went. The desire absolutely vanished, although I had not thought of giving up the habit. I was working in the tobacco business at the time, and I had been accustomed to smoking a great deal; but, although I continued at this business for a year, yet never once did I have the slightest desire to smoke. I had also been subject to a bowel disorder every summer, and two years ago was taken with a severe attack while at work, but in fifteen minutes the treatment which my understanding of God and man enabled me to give, cured this disease, and it has never returned.
