It is an almost impossible task to put into words all that Christian Science has meant to me during the last twenty years and to tell of all the physical and other problems worked out in Science. From the start my first faint gleams of understanding proved that Science and Health was indeed a textbook, and a key to the Scriptures. At the time I bought my first copy, glasses were being worn on account of headache when reading, but after a while they were forgotten.

I did not take up the study of Christian Science for healing, but after attending a Wednesday evening meeting and reading Science and Health I could say with a positive reason that this was the truth about God and man. The valley of decision was reached in the second year, when my regular semiannual grippe attack came. In past years it had meant a week in bed, and a member of the family being a doctor, it was easy to get material help. I tried to realize the truth for myself, but came to the point where it seemed necessary to have either a practitioner or a doctor, for I was so ill I could hardly stand. A practitioner was therefore called on the telephone at noon, and by night I was well. There has never been a return of this trouble. Since then to mortal sense I have had greater physical healings, also business problems have been worked out, but these seem as nothing compared to the wonderful peace and happiness that comes from understanding the allness of God.
