About five years ago, I found myself in a strange city...

About five years ago, I found myself in a strange city under a sense of such general physical exhaustion and mental depression that I became greatly alarmed as to my ability to continue in the work I had undertaken. At that time I had a certain confidence in chiropractic and osteopathy. I had been attracted by Christian Science, but it had seemed difficult for me to grasp, and I had followed it in only desultory fashion. I realized I had reached the point where I must make a final decision. Chiropractic beckoned and tempted, but Christian Science won. I was a total stranger in the town, and knew of no practitioner. Though laboring under a sense of illness, I dressed and went out into the storm to find one. I hunted up a Reading Room and made inquiry there. I was directed to a practitioner living in the neighborhood. I have thanked God ever since for my meeting with that dear woman. Before I had talked with her many minutes I had made a beginning in understanding. I felt a sense of peace enfold me, and experienced a quiet dissolution of the persistent "How?" and "Why?" As she went on and defined Love and the real man as distinguished from a mortal, I knew I was home at last. I went back to my hotel, and awoke the next morning to the realization of a world full of joy and energy. I had lost all sense of fatigue and of physical effort in moving about, and had gained, instead, a sense of joyful buoyancy.

Upon crossing the Canadian border, on the way to Montreal, I was obliged to submit to enforced vaccination as a protective measure against a general fear of smallpox. As a result, a severe difficulty developed, the sense of suffering being so intense that I could neither sleep nor eat. I managed to continue my work, but after a few days was forced to seek help; so wired the same practitioner. A complication affecting the throat had set in an threatened to make the use of the voice for public work impossible. Relief came immediately.
