Some time ago I was seized with violent pain, and immediately declared the truth, without however meeting the trouble thoroughly, as we are taught to do in Christian Science. I expected a beneficent effect from a good night's rest, and so thought I would pay no further attention to the pain. This was a mistake, and a much greater one yet was that I thought such a thing as a diseased or sinful belief could not touch me after the beautiful demonstrations it had been my privilege to experience through divine Love; but, as the apostle says, "Let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." At any rate, the pain became so severe the next day that I could not collect myself sufficiently to handle my own case. In the region of the liver there was a big swelling, and I was at a loss to account for my condition.

Having taken up duties in the home of strangers, I had to ask to be exempted from them for the day, and this of course attracted the attention and the mistaken sympathy of the inmates of the house. My condition steadily grew worse while I was being urged to use material remedies, since all kinds were held out as effective; in fact, the people in the house communicated with a physician against my wish, but I held fast to the thought that God is Love, and finally succeeded in having a telegram sent to a Christian Science practitioner, asking her to take up treatment.
