I pay at last a precious debt

I pay at last a precious debt. After ten years' study I have come to be a strong believer in Christian Science and a follower of Mrs. Eddy; and I find myself now as firm a a rock, understanding something of God, divine Principle. I was born of pious parents. My church was the Anglican church. In it duties of membership were strictly fulfilled. I was taught that God is our only refuge, but distress and sickness walked with me through life, making me miserable. Seeking for peace, but not finding it, I came to the conclusion that only death could bring it. Praying and patiently waiting, I dragged on my days till through a dear friend I came into possession of Mrs. Eddy's book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," which was handed to me with the words, "Read and believe."

The precious book became my dearest companion. I could not do without it. I wanted to understand. I hungered after righteousness. I was far from every Christian Science church, but a few periodicals were sent me now and then; and sometimes the perusal of these brought true joy and gratitude. Led by a precious Christian Science friend many difficulties were overcome, and Truth was spreading its wonderful light. I believed!
