I wish to express my deep gratitude for Christian Science. It is twelve years since I first heard of it. As a child, I had always been trying to think things out for myself. I became a member of the Established Church of Scotland, to which my parents belonged. Religion, however, seemed to puzzle me, and I could not understand the Bible. After I was married and had children of my own, my greatest desire for them was that they should have something more reliable than I had. I began to think very seriously, and soon found that the church no longer could satisfy me. I became restless and disappointed, my health gave way, and the Bible remained a closed book.

It was in this condition that Christian Science found me. I went to the Christian Science church one Sunday evening, and what arrested my attention most was that well-known text, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." It was illuminated for me. I knew from that moment that there was Truth to know, and that Christian Science would lead me to this Truth. I borrowed the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and began to study. It all seemed most beautiful, but I could not understand it.
