It is over three and a half years since I first heard of Christian Science. At that time I was in a desperate condition. For fifteen years I had suffered from rheumatic gout, affecting every joint from my neck to my toes. Several of the joints were locked, and each day I seemed capable of doing less. Several doctors and a specialist were consulted, and they all agreed that my case was incurable. I could do very little for myself; in fact was quite dependent upon my friends for everything.

At the time I heard of Christian Science I was much troubles about a sister who was suffering from a mental breakdown which was declared to be incurable, though she had been under medical care for about five years. In speaking of my sister a friend who visited at my home said she knew that Christian Science would heal her. I simply laughed at the thought and told her how many doctors had the case, and that all had said she would never be better; but my friend was insistent, so I promised to mention the matter to my parents and abide by their decision. When I did mention the matter, my father said he would not have Christian Science tried; that if prayers could have saved her she would have been better long ago, and I agreed with him in this view of the case.
