A number of years ago, previous to my becoming acquainted with Christian Science, I fractured my right arm when attempting to start a motor car. I was unable to resume my clerical duties until seven weeks later; and it was nine to twelve months before I could follow up the athletic pursuits to which I had been accustomed.

On Tuesday, November 8, 1927, I had a similar accident and again broke the right radius. Although I have been interested in Christian Science for some years I had not, up to that time, attained to the degree of understanding which would enable me to know that Science could heal a surgical case as easily as a medical one.

Under these circumstances I proceeded to a hospital, and the surgeon in attendance said that I was suffering from a broken right arm. Four X-ray photographs were taken, and each confirmed the surgeon's diagnosis, which was also supported by a second doctor, by whom I was examined the following morning. The arm was placed in splints and a sling, and I was instructed to attend daily for massage, and told that it would be seven or eight weeks before I could resume my business, and several months before it would be possible for me to start a motor car.
