I had no thought of physical healing when I became interested in Christian Science in 1900; I was but an earnest seeker for the truth about God and man. The promise, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," was soon, however, to be verified to me. Meeting a Christian Scientist at a time of great perplexity and sorrow at the passing on of a greatly loved son, I asked her many questions about the Master's teaching, and his going away. She said, "Christ never went away. As Christ Jesus said, 'Before Abraham was, I am,' and 'Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.' " This made things clear to me, and death was "swallowed up in victory." My tears then were wiped away, and from that day to this my only tears have been tears of joy.

I inclosed what money I had at this time in an order for Mrs. Eddy's writings, the Hymnal, subscriptions to the Journal and Sentinel. On their arrival, I began the study of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," with the utmost confidence that it would unlock to me the spiritual understanding of the Bible, which had always been very precious to me. In a few weeks the discovery was made that two chronic diseases that had bothered me since childhood had disappeared, proving that the truth had made me free. The uselessness of administering drugs to heal was revealed, and all such were destroyed, and have never since been resorted to. It would take too much space to tell of all the discordant conditions, lack of supply included, that have been met through the understanding of God as Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.

To the friends throughout the world who write such helpful things in the periodicals,—articles, poems, testimonies, introductions to lectures,—and to the lecturers themselves, I extend most heartfelt thanks.
