It is now about eleven years since I first had the privilege of hearing about Christian Science from a friend. It was not for relief from any disease that I accepted its regenerating teachings, but rather from a tendency to search for the truth. Since then I have had only occasions for gratitude for the reforming, healing, regenerating, saving influence of this blessed teaching, which opens our eyes that they may see, and our ears that they may hear, the "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

Being at that time a student of the school of fine arts I was acquainted with all the so-called artistic ways of living —stupid exaggerations of all kinds, love of amusements, tobacco, et cetera, believed to be indispensable to art students and to inspiration. Although not in great sympathy with all those things, I was gradually released entirely from their hold through the understanding I then had of Christian Science. I undertook seriously to learn English in order that I might independently study for myself our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and the other writings of our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy, as well as the Christian Science periodicals. Thanks be to God I have now for years been able satisfactorily to do that.
