About seven years ago my brother sent me the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and a few copies of the Sentinel. I was then in normal school and did not take time to read them very much; but what I did read I thought was very beautiful, although not understanding it all. My brother, however, assured me that I would gain the understanding of the Christ, Truth, as I kept on reading.

My health was never good from childhood, and I was never strong like others, and kept getting worse as I grew older. I could not do very much work or go anywhere without afterwards having to lie down to rest and sometimes being ill. I had to give up my school work and life did not seem to hold very much for me. I had a great desire to know more about God and Christ Jesus, so after we moved to this place, about three years ago, I began to read more earnestly in Science and Health and found there what I had been seeking and longing for—the truth about God and His Christ. This understanding of Truth seemed very, very wonderful. I read day and night almost, and was so interested I forgot all about the material means I had been taking and have never resorted to them again; and I am healthier and stronger than ever before. I can take long journeys without becoming sick or tired, and can do more work. One mornign I awoke with all the symptoms of diphtheria, but had no fear and felt confident that the power of Truth would heal me. Soon all the symptoms disappeared.
