It is a pleasure and privilege to tell something of what Christian Science has done for me, and I hope that this statement of facts may be a help to others. Although I had casually heard of Christian Science for some years, I had given it little or no thought excepting as a passing fad, until during the spring and summer of 1909 I received several copies of The Christian Science Monitor, sent me by a relative who was interested in the work. I threw aside the first copies received, after opening them, but during the morning one of my associates saw them and asked me what they were. I told him, explaining that some of my relatives who were very much interested in Christian Science had sent them. Then we each picked up a copy glanced through it, our simulataneous remarks being to the effect that it seemed a good paper, the page on sport receiving especial comment as we had not expected to find a page of this character. From reading the Monitor, received from time to time, I gained the feeling that Christian Science was at least rational and that there might possibly be something in it after all, the more so as the Christian Scientists I knew were decidedly level-headed and intelligent.

At this time I was suffering with severe stomach trouble (as a young man I had had a siege of almost a year with gastric disease) and my condition becoming acute my doctor advised my removal from the country to San Francisco for medical treatment. On arriving here he further advised my being taken to a hospital, but my wife objected, as she would not be allowed to nurse me there, and being a trained nurse she naturally wished to look after me herself, so we remained at a hotel.
