Not being able to admit that God would permit evil, and on the other hand not being willing to believe in a God of limited power, I was without hope and without a guide in the world when, in the spring of 1917, I found on the officers' table, where I was taking a meal, a pamphlet entitled, "Christian Science, its Principle and Method." I read it with interest, and through this reading acquired the certainty that I had found the way which would lead me to the understanding of God. I immediately procured a Bible, the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, subscribed to Le Heraut, and began to study the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly, endeavoring to put into practice what I acquired of the truth.

I can joyfully say that in a short time a general transformation took place in me. I perceived, first, that I was healed of chronic enteritis as well as of an intercostal pain from which I had suffered for more than ten years—a pain to which no relief was brought by the numerous doctors whom I had consulted. At the same time I was also freed from the habit of smoking.
