Four years ago I was led into Christian Science through some very dear friends. For eight or ten years I had been taking medicine steadily for various troubles; in fact, I was never free from some kind of sickness. Every winter I would take two or three severe colds; and I had several nasal operations which did not benefit me. I had worked for eighteen years for a prominent wholesale house in the capacity of buyer in one of their departments. Changing business conditions seemed to make it desirable for me to resign and start a business of my own, but lack of confidence kept me from doing so. Worry over this caused me to have a nervous breakdown.

I read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, together with the Bible, regularly; also, I found many helpful articles in The Christian Science Journal and the Christian Science Sentinel, and attended services regularly whenever possible, whether at home or away on business trips. A practitioner gave me much help during the first few months. My health improved slowly but steadily, and in reading the Bible I found so many promises made by God to His children that I gained the courage to resign my position and enter into business on my own account. To-day I want to give grateful acknowledgment that I am in a fair way to do my share in the building up of a prosperous business, and I am sure that without the better understanding of God given me by Christian Science fear would have kept me from taking this step.
