Before I was attracted to Christian Science by the different point of view which my brother adopted on taking up the study of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I was always either taking patent medicines or under the doctor's care. But as I began to understand the meaning of "the scientific statement of being," to be found on page 468 of Science and Health, many fears disappeared; and for over twelve years I have not taken medicine of any kind. While in the army I was stationed for some time at Ripon, Yorkshire, England; and I cannot express the joy I felt on making my way through the unlighted streets my first night out from camp, when I saw the sign of the Christian Science Reading Room, and on the many subsequent visits to that "upper room" and later to the larger building. I am very grateful for our daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, and our other authorized litature, and for the progress made through class instruction, membership in The Mother Church and a branch church, and loyal obedience to the Church Manual. I am finding that in true service is found the proof of gratitude, which words can never express.
