Christian Science came into my life in the winter of 1911, while I was recuperating from a spell of illness. I was asked to attend a Christian Science service and said I would, as I was away from home where no one knew me. I did not understand any of the service but was impressed with the large attendance. After that I attended for several weeks, and on returning home purchased a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. After reading the book three weeks I laid aside my glasses, which had been worn eight years. Three specialists had told me I would never be able to go without them, and I had worn them constantly from early morning until I went to bed.

A short time afterwards I was mixing lime to use for a whitewash and some of the liquid went into my eye. The pain was so great I moaned aloud and put my hand over the eye. I then thought I would try Christian Science, so realized the "scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468) as best I could, and in a few minutes all pain left. I still had my hand over the eye, but the thought came that I had received my help, so I took my hand off. At this moment a neighbor came out, one who was interested in Christian Science. I told her what had transpired in the last few minutes, and on looking at the eye she said there was scarcely any inflammation left. In less than an hour I never would have known that anything had happened.
