Some years ago, in Chicago, a dear friend took me to see a building then under construction, called First Church of Christ, Scientist. I was accustomed to seeing fine buildings, and rather wondered at my friend's enthusiasm and at the name of the church; but I asked no questions, because some one had told me that this friend was crazy on the subject of religion, and I was glad to avoid the subject lest she should become excited.

Since that time I do not remember of having heard of Christian Science until about three years ago, when another friend, seeing my great need, advised that I investigate this religion. I followed her advice at once, and soon entered upon the most wonderful and interesting period of my life. I had not read three pages of Science and Health before I was convinced that this was what I had been longing for all my mortal days, an intelligible idea of God. I studied constantly, but my progress seemed very slow. I gave physical healing very little thought, as I did not understand that studying Christian Science could help me in that way; but one day I found I could read without my glasses, to which I had been a slave for over five years. Since that time I have felt no need of them.
