In June, 1914, a Christian Science practitioner came to our home with an old friend. That day my suffering had been worse than usual, and having lost faith in every one and every thing, I did not think there was any good in Christian Science, so naturally my greeting was not very cordial. But the practitioner had such a spiritual understanding of the all-power of God, divine Truth, to heal the sick, that I was soon convinced of my error. In a few minutes all pain was gone and my clouded thought was normal. When she said I was healed I knew it was the truth, and accepted it with all faith. After such a demonstration of instant healing I could never doubt God's loving-kindness.

I had suffered great physical pain and extreme nervous trouble for over six years, had some internal injury caused by a fall, and had endured great suffering on account of an unusual trouble with my teeth; in fact, I was always an invalid. I had passed several years in hospitals and at sanitariums, also had undergone several serious surgical operations with only temporary help. During my last illness the pain was so severe that I could obtain very little sleep or rest, and could not retain even a small amount of food. I was so seriously affected mentally that I was nearly insane for over two years, and the worst feature of the mental trouble was that I fully realized my condition.
