When my mother handed me the first copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy that I had ever seen, telling me that by the study of it I could learn to follow Jesus and heal the sick, I did not doubt her; and I have since proved her words true. At that time I had worn glasses for eight years, and was also wearing a truss for a rupture. Both were disposed of at once, and have not been needed since. I was soon healed of nose and throat trouble, for which I had had frequent medical treatment without receiving help. Since that time, when applying for a position, I was examined by a physician, who said my eyes were exceptionally good and my nose and throat in good condition.

My next healing was of an abscess on my back, which developed while I was in a boarding school in another city. I was examined by the school physician and nurse, who advised immediate attention, fearing I would not be about for the May Day exercises due in two weeks, in which I had an important part. However, I asked for Christian Science treatment, and had it. Realizing the opposition at the school, I dressed and obtained permission to stay in the suburbs with friends who were Christian Scientists. When I arrived at their house, I was in such a condition that they telephoned to Philadelphia for my sister to come. She came as quickly as possible, and I was at the train to meet her, perfectly well. Needless to say, the nurse at the school was surprised to see me back within a week in fine condition. This was my first treatment by a practitioner. The other healings were accomplished by reading Science and Health.
