A short while after my marriage (more than forty years ago) I found myself a sick woman. I could never nurse my children, and I did not improve as years passed by; indeed, new diseases were added, and I became a helpless and a hopeless sufferer. I had bladder and female trouble, also dropsy. At last I took my bed, with no outlook but sorrow and suffering. My only daughter was then married and away from me, so that my husband and sons had to do for themselves and me, and our home was truly a sad one.

I had heard that a lady some distance from me had been healed by Christian Science, and the practitioner was not far away, so my son said he would go for her if I was willing. This was five years ago. I can never forget that Saturday evening in November. She arrived at sunset, and sat by me and talked as I had never before heard any one talk. She told me about a God who is Love, who sent no evil upon me or any one. I sat up in bed and said, "That is the kind of God I want; but is it true? I was taught that God sent these ills upon me. Oh, how happy I am!"
