I feel it both a duty and a pleasure to tell those who are seeking the truth what Christian Science has done for me. Some five years ago I lost one whom I loved very dearly, and my two little children were left motherless. I struggled on alone, with housekeepers to look after them, and all the time I was trying to drown my sorrow in drink; consequently I lost a good situation, and nearly lost my home, for which I had been paying. My little girl was taken sick and I called in a doctor, who continued to come for about a week and finally said the little girl was well again; but in two weeks she had a relapse.

About this time a sister-in-law of our housekeeper came to stay with her for a while, and she was a Christian Scientist. This was the first time that Christian Science had ever been brought to my notice, and we sat up until twelve o'clock, the second night, talking about it, and what she said made such an impression on me that I promised to attend the next meeting. This I did, and I certainly did grasp at the testimonies which were given that night. I attended every meeting thereafter, but the second week the little girl was taken sick again, and for three days could not retain any food. I trusted in God, however, and finally made up my mind to try Christian Science. I had the child dressed and then carried her in my arms to a practitioner.
