Too long have I delayed expressing, in writing, my gratitude for Christian Science. Years ago a friend told me of the blessings it had brought her family and urged me to take up the study. I replied that I could not do it, as my husband was a physician. She said, "You could read the book and attend the church services." Just at that time I was longing for a religion and going to different churches, but I found nothing satisfying. I had been in earlier life a member of an orthodox church, but had lost interest and had ceased to attend, and for many years my Bible was a closed book.

The Sunday following the above-mentioned conversation I attended a Christian Science service for the first time, and I shall never forget the peace and harmony there experienced. On returning home I went to a neighbor who, I learned, was a Christian Scientist, and asked if I might borrow her book on Christian Science. She said she used that book every day and could not spare it, but she was to be away that afternoon, and if I would return it that evening I might take it.
