In 1908 Christian Science found me a very much discouraged and hopeless invalid, as I had suffered for almost ten years from stubborn abdominal disorders, accompanied with extreme nervousness. The intestines seemed to be paralyzed. At one time I was bedfast for nine months; and later, at different intervals, especially during the winter months, I had to stay in bed for weeks at a time. Four systems of healing were given a trial, but none brought complete relief. Finally, I was advised to go to a milder climate, as we were then living in the state of Iowa.

We came to California; and here, a fruitless search for over a year, I became acquainted with Christian Science through a dear neighbor, who first presented it to me. Knowing little of this new religion myself, I hesitated to accept it or even give it a trial, as according to the teachings of the church which I had been attending all my life, it seemed not in accord with my beliefs, and I did not wish to do anything which might hinder me from future salvation.
