One must have experienced the burden of ill temper to appreciate fully the glory of freedom from this almost intolerable form of evil. Christian Science was first presented to me by a friend, who noticed that I was a prey to unhappiness,—the unhappiness that follows in the train of quick temper and constant faultfinding. I had become fully aware of the fact that these unfortunate manifestations were dragging me into the Slough of Despond, and had sought prayerfully for release; but I received no help, and was unhappy and thoroughly disgusted at what I supposed was lack of self-control. My health was far from good; but the thought of ill health did not frighten me so much as the loss of peace of mind, and the fear of offending those whom I loved.

The question, What shall I do to escape all of this misery? was ever in my thought when I began the study of Christian Science. At first, the teaching of Christian Science seemed obscure; but I held on steadfastly, and by degrees the healing work was begun. Now I have the sweet assurance of a complete healing, and feel that I am standing on firm ground. The dread of "blurting out" is fast vanishing.
