My first healing through Christian Science was of scarlet fever. After I had been ill about half a day, our regular doctor examined me and found I had all the symptoms of that disease. He prescribed medicine, and told my mother that I would break out the next morning with scarlet fever rash, after which he would "report the case." My mother, who had suffered greatly for five years and was being healed through Christian Science, telephoned a practitioner immediately. He gave me absent treatment through the night. When the doctor called the next morning, he was surprised, as were my parents, to find me well.

Five years later, I was healed of constipation. This ailment had become chronic with me, and occasinally I took medicines for it. One winter while away from home I had an acute attack which I did not seem able to overcome through my own efforts in Christian Science. After a week I went home discouraged and asked my mother to help me. In a few hours I was completely normal again, and for five years had no further trouble from that source. Within the last year the condition returned, only to leave me when I gave up reliance on hygiene.
