I first heard of Christian Science in 1896, but as it seemed not to agree with the Bible as I understood it at that time I gave it little attention. Our baby boy had never been able to digest his food properly and had suffered greatly in consequence. The doctor assured me each month that the next he would be better, but the improvement never came. I wrote a specialist on children's diseases, who sent a prescription and said if that did not help the baby nothing would, as he was in the last stages of cholera infantum. I gave this remedy without results.

I again went to the friend who had told me of Christian Science, this time anxious to find help for my child. The words of love she spoke gave me courage, and I consulted the other members of the family about having this kind of help. No one would give me advice but said to do as I thought best, and after a few days of thought and prayer I decided to see a practitioner. I spent an hour or so with her very profitably. As I was leaving I asked what I was to do and she said, "Know for yourself and the child that you are the ideas of infinite Love." I have been trying ever since to realize this great fact.
