I first came in contact with practical Christianity several years ago. I had been away for about five years, and upon returning to my home city to visit friends found that one of them had been healed in Christian Science of a physical ailment of fourteen years' standing and by several schools of medicine considered incurable. This physical healing was to me wonderful; but more wonderful was the spiritual regeneration and enlightenment. Being very cynical and critical, I would not acknowledge even to myself that I could ever change my conception of God and man, but this glimpse of the results of a fuller and more far—reaching religion planted the seed of hope which later bore fruit, for I was not much longer satisfied with the husks. Eight months afterward I borrowed a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy from a public library, and read almost all day and half the night for some time.

My first healing was the laying aside of glasses, which had been worn constantly for six years. I simply forgot to put them on and read all day without them. They have never been used since, although the specialist who fitted me with glasses after treating my eyes said I would never have normal sight again, and that the lenses would have to be strengthened about every six months. I then calmly accepted this verdict and followed his advice, but now my eyes are in a perfectly normal condition and I use them constantly in many kinds of work.
