As a little child I was compelled by doctors and specialists to put on glasses, they claiming that I had a bad astigmatism of one eye. For years many of my days were spent in dark rooms with sickness and pain. I was soon taken out of school; and my hair, which was unusually long and heavy, was kept short in order that strength possible should be allowed to benefit my eyes and the general nervous condition they seemed to be causing.

Some years passed, and I was allowed to study a little; but during each summer my entire time was spent trying to gain enough strength that I might do some studying the following winter. After years of such caring for my health, my eyes suddenly grew worse, and a muscular condition developed which complicated matters and made it necessary to redouble every effort possible in the way of care. Books and all chance to study anything seemed gone forever; and dark rooms, ice bags, hot water bottles, and pain were my constant companions. The doctors, hoping to strengthen the muscles, worked daily on my eyes with prisms, until many times it was with difficulty that I was able to walk alone after leaving their offices.
