I do not know if there are yet any others in this town of five thousand people who hold to the Christian Science faith besides the writer. I used to think all who believed in Christian Science were cranks, and when my children who were living in a distant city espoused its cause and told of its wonderful works I expressed myself very forcibly against such belief. When they attributed my ridicule to ignorance of the subject and asked me whether I would read Mrs. Eddy's book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," I told them that of course I would read it, so they sent me a copy.

I might say that for twenty-five years prior to this I had been taking medicine for internal troubles which several times brought me to a bed of sickness, and for a while it was a question of life or death; but when I had finished reading Science and Health for the first time, I awoke to a realization that my ailments were all gone, and since then I have had the best of health with the exception of a few slight attacks which were soon overcome. I have since then been a changed man. The old religious beliefs in which I had been brought up never did appeal to me, but the reading of the Bible with Mrs. Eddy's "key" has given me a clearer concept of things, and I am striving daily to advance in this knowledge.
