I took up the study of Christian Science about six years ago. At that time I was very unhappy, and did not know where to turn for help. Although brought up in the Church of England, its teachings had never appealed to me, and I had long since given up attending its services. I had sought happiness in worldly pleasures, but failed to find it. At this point I came across the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy; and although I did not for one moment think it could help me (I thought I had no use at all for religion), I started to read it—more out of curiosity than anything else. I had not finished the first chapter before I knew it contained that which I had always been seeking. I did not altogether understand it, but I shall never forget the great sense of peace which came to me as I read the chapter on Prayer. It was as though a great burden had been lifted.

Since that time I have experienced numberless blessings. I have been healed of a great deal of fear; in fact, I do not think I realized how large a place fear held in my consciousness until it began to be uncovered and destroyed. Shortly after taking up the study of Christian Science, I was attacked with severe pain in the throat and neck. There was considerable swelling, and my neck became practically rigid. I could neither bend nor move it, and scarcely knew how to sit up or lie down. I was very young in Science at the time, very fearful, and quite unable to overcome the condition myself, so asked help from a practitioner. I do not remember exactly how long it was before the complete healing came, but I believe it was a matter of some three weeks. The healing, however, was complete; and I have never had a return of the trouble.
