In the fall of 1912 I was advised by physicians in Wyoming to seek a climate where I might find relief from bronchial asthma, a trouble from which I had been suffering for several years. During that time I had tried different climates, lived at sea-level, at twelve thousand feet above, and at intermediate points, also consulted physicians everywhere, only to be told that there was no cure. I kept getting worse until the time mentioned, when the attacks became so severe that the doctor said I could not stay where I was and live a year. I had not been able to leave the house for weeks when my husband put me on the train for Denver on my way to the South. A gentleman on the train was reading The Christian Science Monitor, and in a few minutes handed it to me with the remark that it was a very fine paper and I might find something which would interest me.

That was the first Christian Science literature I had ever seen, and after looking it over and reading some good articles, I asked why it was called a Christian Science paper. He explained about it and then took out of his pocket a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy and told me to look at it. I read the chapter on Prayer and thought it the most beautiful thing I had ever read. The gentleman then told me about Christian Science as a healing agency, gave me the address of the reading-room in Denver, and advised me to visit it. I did so the following day and was impressed by the number of earnest students congregated there. A few days later, when my husband joined me, I told him what I had heard about Christian Science, and simultaneously an old friend of his, whom he had not seen in years, called and told us how his wife had been healed through Science and that it would surely help me. We were willing to try it, so an appointment was made with a practitioner, and the following day I began to take treatment. I improved from the first, and in a few days was able to walk several miles. In less than two months I was well and went back to my home in Laramie, Wyo., where I had been told I could not live, and remained there, with the exception of a few weeks, until the fall of 1914.
