I wish to express my deepest gratitude for all that...

I wish to express my deepest gratitude for all that Christian Science has done for me. From childhood I had been very delicate, and as time went on I seemed to grow worse instead of better, having frequent attacks of bad stomach trouble, which meant months in bed, when it was almost impossible to take any food at all. I tried many different remedies and was many times in hospital, only to find that after a little while the old trouble returned in a more severe form. In the spring of 1913 I was very ill indeed, worse than ever before, and at last the doctors said an operation was the only thing for me. I once again went into hospital—this being the eighth time—and the operation was performed. After a long, weary time of pain and weakness, I was once more able to start work, and hoped I was really cured of the trouble.

In the autumn of that year I went abroad. Soon after leaving England the old conditions returned, and I lost all hope of ever being well again; life seemed a burden, and I felt I would rather give up the struggle, for it seemed to me that God could not care about me, or He would not allow so much suffering to come into my life. I was thoroughly miserable and wretched, and had lost all the faith of my childhood; for I had been brought up in a Christian home. At this time I was asked to try Christian Science; but I refused at first, as I did not believe there was anything in it. Finally, however, feeling too ill to care what I tried, I said I would.
