When Christian Science was first brought to my notice...

When Christian Science was first brought to my notice I was a long way from the kingdom of heaven. Its message came to me like water to the desert—the desert of material beliefs.

Paralyzed in my left leg, left arm, and tongue, my speech being so very indistinct that even those who were constantly in my presence had to ask me to write down what I was striving to say; a heavy smoker both day and night; profane in thought when I was no longer able to be profane in speech; bearing thoughts of malice, vengeance, and hate toward people whom I thought had done me injury; suffering from weak eyes, caused by gas poisoning during the war, for which at times I had to wear smoked glasses or sit in a darkened room; my home broken up, and my wife having to go out as "daily help" to earn food for the children and for me—a battered wreck on the shore of time, I dragged my days along in misery.
