One day I was taken seriously ill and was suffering so much that I was unable to help myself. I asked for Christian Science treatment that evening, but the next day I could see very little change. To add to this, our little girl, eight years old, was also attacked with severe chills, pains in the back and chest, followed by very high fever. About half past two in the morning she became so delirious we were obliged to get help from a practitioner for her also. My husband and I worked in Science to the best of our knowledge, and in about an hour she began to breathe quite normally and to sleep peacefully. But in the morning when she got up she was seized again with the same symptoms as before, while my case was so complicated and distressing that we seemed to have allowed fear to creep in for her.

Our treatment continued three days with seemingly no change but for the worse. During the third day a neighbor came in, and seeing the child's condition pronounced it a severe case of pneumonia. At that time she seemed at times as if she would pass on. The practitioner was again informed of the case, and the fear of death was destroyed. The next day the child was greatly improved. At the end of a week she and I were both able to go out.
