It would be impossible for me to express in words the deep gratitude I owe to God for Christian Science In January, 1922, I was suffering intensely from what medical science had diagnosed as "dropped kidneys." Day and night I was tightly trussed in a surgical belt, and was also in great mental darkness. The breaking point came when my dear mother passed on suddenly and I really felt I had come to the end of things. In February, 1923, the firm in whose employment I was, and still am, sent me to a convalescent home on the seacoast. While there I wandered about by myself, not wishing to speak to anyone. On the tenth day I caught a chill, and according to the doctor I was on the verge of having pneumonia. A few days previously my firm had sent down a young lady, partly on business. At the time she herself was working through a mental problem. One day while sitting in a Christian Science Reading Room she picked up the Christian Science Hymnal and opened it at Hymn 126, where she read,

"Is thy burden hard and heavy?
Do thy steps drag wearily?
Help to bear thy brother's burden,
God will bear both it and thee."
