For ten years before hearing of Christian Science I wore glasses for headache. A trip to the oculist and a change of lenses was necessary every year, but each time the pain was only temporarily alleviated, and then the suffering would increase. The best oculists in Cleveland were consulted and did all they could, but at the end of the ninth year I was told there was only one lens stronger than the one I was using and after that nothing further could be done. This seemed a pretty hard sentence, as with the constant pain I had become very irritable and unhappy. I also suffered from rheumatism and chronic throat and bronchial trouble.

The healing of a friend, who was cured in four weeks of stomach disorder of many years' standing, led me to investigate Christian Science, and I was told that through reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy I would surely receive aid. Lack and limitation seemed a big thing at that time, so I asked God to help me, for I wanted that book above everything else. Three days later I received from a relative a letter with five dollars in it. I hastened to buy the text—book and fairly hugged it all the way home, at the same time thanking God, for I knew this book was to teach me about Him.
