It is eighteen years since I received my first revelation of God, the divine Principle, Love. I had been taught to think of myself as very delicate, not strong enough to be normal or like others; and later on in life I became very ill, and no one could tell me what was wrong. The burden and heaviness of the world pressed upon me so much that I often had to leave the great city which was my home and seek rest and shelter in a health resort. Once, while I was resting there and thinking deeply of why God could allow so much suffering, the answer was given me in these words: God sends only love; human mistakes cause all pain and suffering. I pondered the words silently and deeply, and felt sure there must be some teaching that would make everything clear to me.

I made inquiries, and was told of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and a friend offered to procure a copy for me. I studied it and loved its teaching, especially the second chapter; for I had been brought up a Unitarian. Two years later, while staying at the health resort, I found a little Christian Science church.
