Twenty years ago, I fell one morning on my way to business; but felt no ill effects at the time, with the exception of a sprained ankle, which lasted only a few days. Four or five months later, however, I began to walk with great difficulty; and during the following year I consulted many physicians and specialists, and a number of X-ray pictures were taken; but the trouble could not be located. The foot gradually became so deformed that I walked on the ankle joint. I finally sought the advice of a Johns Hopkins' surgeon, who decided to operate; and it was found that I had been walking on a compound fracture, with the bones scattered through the foot. The surgeon stated that the operation was only an experiment, being the only one of the kind on record; and that the following six months would prove whether it was a success or not. A year and a half later, conditions were growing worse; and I was sent West as a last resort.
One evening, several months later, I was sitting alone, the picture of hopelessness and discouragement. I felt that I could no longer endure the suffering, which had not left me day or night for three years; and, just a few days before, the uncle who had taken me to his home in Nebraska had wept over my condition, realizing that I was growing weaker day by day. Suddenly I overheard him in an adjoining room relating to an out-of-town guest a wonderful healing of a friend of his through Christian Science. Instantly, the thought came to me that I need not be discouraged because the physicians could do no more for me, as there was nothing impossible to God. I went to my uncle and told him that
Christian Science was what I wanted; and he replied, "You shall have it." He wrote to the friend who had been healed; and when he came from a near-by town and told me something of the Christ, Truth, I knew it was what I wanted more than anything else in the world. I began diligently the study of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and in a few weeks returned to my home here in Washington, where I called upon a Christian Science practitioner and asked for help. That night, for the first time in three years, I was free from pain, and my rest was undisturbed.
