I have experienced the wonderful healing and sustaining power of Christian Science through all the problems of the past fifteen years. At a time when medical science held out no hope whatever, and after my one last hope—that of a higher altitude and a cooler climate—had completely failed, I was let to investigate Christian Science. I was utterly exhausted and in despair when, for the first time, I took up the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I immediately felt the invigorating and uplifting effect of a higher hope. As a boy I had earnestly sought to know God, and had occasionally spent whole nights in prayer. But the materialism of the schools was too much for the few glowing religious experiences of early youth, and I had long since resolved God into nothing more than that which could be explained by chemical and physical forces.

After reading the Preface to Science and Health and seeing that the teaching planted itself unreservedly on fundamentals which, if true, were entirely revolutionary in their nature, and gaining thereby a great relief from physical weariness and pain, I was greatly moved, and a new hope sprang up within me. As I read on through the chapter entitled "Prayer" I knew for a certainty that I could be healed. Sleep came easily that night, and the next morning I awoke to a new world.
