With a profound sense of gratitude I am desirous of narrating a most wonderful demonstration of divine Love, which was the means of bringing my family and myself into the dawn of that glorious light which never fails anyone who seeks it aright; also, I truly hope that it may assist and comfort some weary traveler, who is, as I was, in the slough of despond.

In 1914, a memorable year, I had lost all my money, business, and interest in life. I became very ill, was operated upon, and drifted on through the winter, until well into the summer of 1915. We then met some friends who had returned from Paris, France, owing to the war, and they tried hard to interest me in Christian Science, but I would have none of it, being most bitterly opposed. One of these friends tried to get me to visit a practitioner, which after much persuasion I did, but not receiving any immediate benefits, was still against it. The friend then took my wife and myself, while I was very irritable and ill, to a Wednesday evening meeting at First Church of Christ, Scientist, New York city. After the meeting I stood outside that church vowing that I would never get up and give testimony in any church, but on the following Thanksgiving morning I gave my testimony there, most thankfully indeed.
