I have had many reasons to be grateful for Christian Science during the twenty-one years since my parents first became interested through the complete healing of an aunt from total blindness, after unsuccessful treatment by specialists. This healing was related in a letter of gratitude written by my aunt to Mrs. Eddy, and later published in the Christian Science Sentinel of January 2, 1909. Shortly after this healing, a brother and I were entered in a Christian Science Sunday School and had the opportunity of continuing as Sunday school pupils until the age of twenty.

As a young child I had been ill on several occasions, and necessarily absent from school; but from the time I entered the Christian Science Sunday School, while in the seventh grade, on through high school and college, I was enabled to maintain a perfect attendance record. Subsequently I was in the army for some twenty-one months, and thereafter for four years was a civilian employee of the Government without ever taking sick leave.
