When I think of my condition at the time I took up Christian Science, it seems to me now that I was on the verge of insanity. I had rheumatism, and my feet had great lumps on the bottom, so that I could not wear leather shoes much of the time and could not walk any distance. I worried over a financial loss we had met with, until I did not care what became of me. All the medicines I heard of were tried, but my condition got worse instead of better.

My husband has two sisters who are Christian Scientists, and finally I wrote to one of them and asked her if Christian Science would help me. She answered that it surely would, so I began to study "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, which I had in the house. After a while understanding came and I could, to a small extent, apply its teachings to myself. A practitioner was employed and treatments were given me. My feet were better, and I began to be free from worry over past mistakes. My healing in some ways has been slow, but Christian Science has brought me peace of mind and a satisfaction I never knew before, and I cannot be thankful enough. I have two sons at home, sixteen and fourteen years of age, who are staunch adherents of Christian Science. I have been able to overcome many erroneous conditions for myself and my family and cannot express my thankfulness to Mrs. Eddy for giving the truth of Christ's mission to the world.
