Christian Science was first brought to my attention about twelve years ago through the healing of a friend who was afflicted with serious eye trouble. About one year afterwards I myself was cured of stomach trouble in a few treatments. I had but a very faint idea of what Christian Science healing really was. I thought it was something after the order of mental suggestion and rather scoffed at the idea of God having anything to do with the healing; consequently I could make little or nothing out of the study and gave it up but the healing remained permanent.

My life from a very early period had been dominated by a very great unrest. I did not understand the cause of this mental condition and sought peace and rest in travel, adventure, and even dissipation. But in every place I went I found Truth there ahead of me. Finally it dawned upon me that something was radically wrong with my though and action. Bitter disappointment and great loss swept my life bare of everything desirable, but it was again proved that "man's extremity is God's opportunity," for then came Christian Science with its healing message, the truth about God and man. I have now learned to love the Bible, for when read with the "Key," Science and Health, it has come to be to me the Boo of all books. This study has brought me great peace and joy and I find that the more I learn and understand about God the greater harmony I experience in all my affairs and daily life.
