In 1920, when Christian Science found me, I was in a very bad state, both mentally and physically. From my childhood I had never been well, and of late years had been told by my physician that I was suffering from gastric ulcers. I never went long without having for a time to be kept on my back and on a diet. This was very slow work; and one attack lasted fourteen weeks, to be followed very shortly afterwards by five weeks spent in a hospital, after which I seemed better for a short while. The improvement did not last long, however, so I gave up my situation and went home. The doctor told me I must always diet and never eat meat again; and I thought I must spend the rest of my life in this way. I never felt well, and was sick after everything I ate; while at times I could not stand up straight.

The night before starting for Wales was spent with my cousins, who, I found, had just come to Christian Science, and who told me something about it. The following day I went home, where again I had to undergo a course of treatment and be sent away to a hospital. All the while my thought was: If I get back to my friends, I will try to find out what Christian Science is.
