When in 1903 I first heard of Christian Science, I was very much dejected, owing to troubles of all kinds which had come upon my family and which reacted rather severely upon me. As I did not have the material means to allay their suffering, it distressed me greatly to witness it. I had prayed to God fervently, but my prayers had not been answered, and as a result I lapsed into discouragement and lost all faith in God.

I had a sister who had long been stricken with paralysis, and a few years before had entirely lost her speech. Later on she had also become afficted with nervous attacks of a most serious nature, which made it necessary to have her constantly watched. Some time before this two ladies who practised Christian Science had rented rooms in the house where my sister lived, and one of them became interested in her and gave her treatment. I knew nothing of the method used by this lady, and my sister was incapable of explaining it to me, but I did perceive that she was being benefited mentally. I however thought it was useless for me to try to make the acquaintance of this lady, since everything had failed me in my need.
