It is my desire at this time to express my gratitude and appreciation for what Christian Science has done for me these past five years. When I turned at last to Christian Science, I was fast becoming unable to make my own way in the world; and this was necessary. I had suffered for years with a gnawing pain in my back, caused from spinal trouble, which was fast affecting the use of the limbs. Walking to any extent was a misery. Then came heart trouble; and I was told to resort to the use of digitalis (a so-called heart stimulant) ; however, I did not use this.

A state of discouragement and melancholy had overtaken me, as my surroundings were very discordant and everything but desirable. I turned from the East and came West. On my way I came in contact with a student of Christian Science. I was encouraged, given "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy to read, and a little light came. Truth began to unfold; and slowly the "old man" gave place to the "new." A year from then I was in a Christian Science practitioner's home. There I learned that my heart failure was due to lack of hope, lack of love.
