We read in Deuteronomy, "We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand." I used to be in bondage to many a hard master, including delicate health, sorrow on account of the illness of a relative, and a sense of injustice. A copy of an old edition of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy had been in our home for years without being studied. I had been unable to find any sense in it because it was written in English. Though fond of the church in which I had been brought up, I took no active interest in it, and sought comfort chiefly in books and human sympathy. Not until the latter proved a broken reed, and health and strength seemed to be taken away, was the soil prepared for the good seed.

As I was lying in bed, weak and discouraged, I was driven to take up again the "little book" that had long remained unopened; and now its meaning was clear and beautiful! The fact that many had been healed by reading Science and Health was unknown to me then ; but I became absorbed in the inspired pages, and read the volume from beginning to end. A few days after I had begun, a heavenly joy came over me; and I was entirely healed. Not only had the acute ailments dropped away, but some conditions supposed to be chronic disappeared at the same time, and I could not remember ever having been so well.
