I first became interested in Christian Science about thirty-seven years ago, when all material aid had failed me; and I was healed of many ailments. Later, I was healed of tuberculosis and pneumonia after several doctors, who had been called in by relatives, had pronounced my case incurable. One of the doctors said at one time that I could live but a few minutes unless I took a heart stimulant, which I refused to do. While I realized that seeming seriousness of my condition, I told my family that I wanted nothing but Christian Science, and still had faith that God would heal me.

I had been having treatments from a dear practitioner who had helped me, but when the seeming crisis came I asked that a telegram be sent to a practitioner in my old home town in Iowa, asking for help. A few minutes after she received the message all pain left me, a wonderful sense of peace came, and the hemorrhages ceased immediately. That was about eight o'clock in the evening; and the next morning I got up and dressed and sang "Shepherd, show me how to go" by Mary Baker Eddy (Poems, p. 14), whereas the evening before I could speak only in a whisper. It seemed that the very gates of heaven were opened to me, and my healing was marvelous to everyone.
