For several years before I heard of Christian Science I had suffered from nervous exhaustion in a very severe form, so severe that for the last three years of that time I was quite unable to do any work of any kind. I spent my days wandering from one health resort to another, both at home and abroad. I was then living in England, and was trying different kinds of curative treatments, so called, but without gaining even temporary relief.

At last, when I had apparently exhausted everything, Christian Science was presented to me. At first I would have nothing to do with it, holding "all such things," as I classed it, in the utmost contempt. In the end, however, when almost without hope I decided to try it on the basis that it could at least do me no harm.

My healing was slow and was attended, at times, by bitter resentment, but it was none the less sure. Some nine months after I first commenced treatment, I was back again at work, and since that time, now some twelve years ago, I have been absent from my work for one short half day because of sickness.
