I feel that it is time I made public acknowledgment of the good I have found in Christian Science. In the summer of 1908, while under stress of great mental suffering and longing for a satisfying solution to the seeming problems and inconsistencies of life, I drifted into a Sunday service at Second Church of Christ, Scientist, Waco, Texas. I was impressed with the peaceful simplicity of the service, the utter lack of ostentation and putting forth of personality. The service was so entirely different from that to which I was accustomed, the people seemed so happy and healthy looking, and welcomed me so cordially, inviting me to come again, that I soon found myself among them quite regularly. I had long since fallen out with the popular concept of God and creation, and had gone through the category of the various "isms" without finding anything to which I felt I could anchor my faith absolutely.

Before a great while I felt impelled to get a copy of the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and I took up the study of the Lesson-Sermons. Although at first I had no thought of physical help, I have improved in health from that day on. Very soon life's seemingly tangled snarls began to straighten, not always just as I wished or expected, but it was, as I begin to see now, in the right way. I found that I had idols many; but I am happy to see them crumbling into dust one by one. I had been an ardent believer in osteopathy, in fact a practitioner, but I saw erelong where to place the cures it seems to effect.
