I am very grateful that Christian Science has come into my life. For over two years, while in the north of Scotland, I was treated for what was termed chronic Bright's disease. When it became evident that I was not improving, I was taken to an infirmary at Glasgow for further treatment. Christian Science was brought to my notice by a lady who visited me there, and who gave me a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, which I read, but did not understand at the time. After I had been treated for seven months by the physicians in the infirmary, my case was pronounced incurable, and I was told that nothing more could be done for me.

I was then taken to live with Christian Scientists, and this was a great comfort. I began to read the textbook understandingly. The statement that appealed to me most was that Jesus never inquired if a disease were acute or chronic, and never gave drugs. I then asked for help from a Christian Science practitioner. After having treatment I was able to attend the Christian Science church the following Sunday, although I had not been in church for over three years; and within a short time all signs of this trouble had been overcome. I then realized that God was my Physician, and the truth my only medicine.
