Since gratitude is one of the first requisites in the demonstration of Christian Science, I feel impelled to give thanks, through one of our periodicals, for the many blessings received through this wonderful truth. For nearly ten years it has been my only physician and has met every need. I have found from experience that there is no problem too difficult, no sickness, so called, too malignant for solution or healing, when the truth is correctly applied.

It was while I was studying in a foreign country that Christian Science was first presented to me, by a friend who invited me to attend a Wednesday evening meeting. I went with her, but in a critical state of thought; consequently I came away with the belief that the testimonies of healing, many of them wonderful, were absolute falsehoods or imagination. When my friend later lent me a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I, out of courtesy to her, casually perused the book and returned it to her, with the remark that there was nothing new in it; I had learned all of that in a denominational church. Some years later, when I saw a loved one healed through Christian Science of a claim of many years' standing, which had baffled physicians from coast to coast, I decided to find out what it was, and thereupon began to study it. For any who may be finding it a seeming struggle, however, I will say that it was at least a year before I began to grasp the real import of the truth therein; but I would not allow the greatest of all errors, discouragement, to thwart me. I determined to know, and most certainly that true desire was rewarded by a beautiful, if slow, unfoldment of the truth. I have been grateful because it was slow, for I believe it took deeper root.
