In 1917, when only ten years of age, my eyesight failed me. I could no longer read the figures upon a blackboard; neither while writing could I keep to the lines laid down for me in my books. The advice of an eminent specialist was sought, and he ordered me to a school for the blind in Camberwell. Here I was taught to read and write in Braille, to do my arithmetic with leaden type, and to learn geography from raised maps. For two and a half years I was a pupil at that center, and then I was drafted to a senior school for the afflicted. Here I was able to win a scholarship for the blind, also to win a prize for writing the best Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals essay in Braille.

It was in 1922 that I first heard of Christian Science, but I did not take up the study until 1924. I borrowed the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, in Braille, from a London church, and read each evening, diligently searching and analyzing each sentence and paragraph. I saw clearly that it revealed the truth. Gradually the light dawned. Each day I saw something brighter, something yet clearer, until after a year of earnest study I was pronounced normal by a specialist. From that day to this I have never consulted medical men, neither have I felt any relapse. The doctor who certified me fit, was amazed, and said that a miracle had been wrought. Two months after his declaration I left the school and was helped to find work.
