To say that I am grateful for what Christian Science has done for me, only faintly expresses my feelings. The psalmist sang, "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name; and I can readily echo these sentiments, for I have indeed realized that He "giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not." Since knowing the truth which makes free, such joy and freedom have come to me that I feel I am in a larger world, and that I have taken a fresh lease of life.

Formerly my life did not by any means reach up to my ideal of what it should be. God seemed far off to me, and my faith, being void of understanding, did not bring answers to prayer; therefore I mistrusted the Bible promises, not realizing that the lack was on my part. My health began to fail, and I was great sufferer for some years. After trying various remedies recommended by seven doctors, and having had three hospital experiences, and an operation in 1909 for ovarian trouble, inward chronic ulceration, and what was said to be a malignant growth, I was still no better, but rather worse. In 1910 I was ordered to a second operation. Feeling weary of life and suffering, and knowing that there was little hope of recovery, I readily listened to the dear friend who first told me of Christian Science and gave me a copy of the Journal, which I read most eagerly.
