Nearly five years ago I went to visit relatives who were living in the Bronx, New York, and who were readers for the Christian Science Society there. Prior to that I knew practically nothing of Christian Science. Although I had twice attended service in one of the Chicago churches, I must confess I was not in the least impressed with the mode of worship, because of the fact that I did not have the slightest knowledge of Christian Science or what it meant. I never again thought of the subject until I visited these relatives; then I decided that I would study all I could and keep my eyes and ears open to find out if there was anything in this teaching.

My first experience came one Sunday soon after that. I had been ill all day. My people had gone to evening service, and being left alone in the house I had ample time to think. I then made up my mind that I would never again consult a physician or have anything to do with materia medica. As time wore on, however, I felt that I was a very sick woman, and that something must be done, and done quickly. When my relatives returned and asked me whether they should call in a physician, I told them I wanted Christian Science treatment. My answer was a surprise to them, as I had been so much opposed to this teaching; but I was given treatment at once. I had been in bed all day, and it was then ten o'clock in the evening, but I had not yet closed my eyes. I thought that if Christian Science helped me, I would think there was something in it. I was soon fast asleep, and I awoke in the morning feeling well.
