For some time before I heard of Christian Science, I longed for something, I knew not what. I was a member of a church which was expecting a big revival to begin, and for days I prayed that God would send an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Soon after the meetings began, I attended one; but what I wanted was not there.

Christian Science was presented to me shortly after this, and although I was very skeptical, I saw that others were benefited, so I thought I would give it a fair trial, as I was in great need of help, both mental and physical. From the first treatment I gradually grew better, but I had a long struggle with doubt and fear—I could not decide which was the right course to take. I prayed that if Christian Science was the right way, God would lead me on, and if it was not, that some obstacle would be placed in my way to turn me aside; but nothing appeared, so I kept on striving. It was six months after my first treatment before I had an opportunity to see a copy of Science and Health, but I read a few of the tracts and Journals, and the testimonies in these kept me hopeful, for I felt if God healed others He would heal me. I was cured of neuralgia through the treatment, and when I had the chance to read Science and Health and the Bible, together with the help of the Quarterly, I was freed from female trouble of several years' standing.
