When the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"...

When the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, was first presented to me, it was merely glanced through and laid aside. About five years later we bought a home, and upon opening a Sentinel which the previous occupant had left there, I read a testimony by a writer who had been healed of chronic bowel trouble through the reading of Science and Health. This was a complaint which had caused me great suffering for more than fifteen years, and having tried about everything materia medica had to offer without any lasting benefit, I was willing to try anything.

The idea of anybody being healed of disease through the reading of a book seemed absurd, but I nevertheless procured a copy of Science and Health from the public library, and before the chapter on Prayer was finished I knew that this was what I had always longed for. I had been reared religiously, but it meant nothing to me. Now I had found a God who is divine Love, divine intelligence, who never varies. I could not read fast enough, but wanted to know all that the book held for me at once, and after reading almost constantly for five days I was suddenly healed. That was nearly five years ago and the trouble has not returned. On Feb. 8, 1914, I awoke with severe pain in my head and eyes. I tried to use my understanding of Science, but the pain did not yield, and after suffering intensely for three days I telephoned to a practitioner for help, and was healed in ten minutes. This was my first absent treatment and I was overjoyed.
