After some years of physical misery and moments of intense pain, I was told by physicians in several towns that only an operation could remove the ulcerated condition from which I was suffering. As our financial condition would not permit such an expensive operation, I did not have much to live for; indeed, if I had not had my little girl to care for, I should have wished for death.

I went to every church searching for Truth for a religion that would give me some peace. My home was unhappy, and I thought that if I could find peace in my home, and something definite about God to teach my little girl, — a religion that was not full of doubts and fears, — even though I could not be healed, I should have accomplished something. I prayed constantly for guidance. I was then living in another state. A friend asked me to read some Christian Science literature. I read it, and wanted more; but neither of us knew where to get it. We read what we had over and over. One day I went to the home of an acquaintance to do some sewing and while I was there the postman came, bringing some copies of the Christian Science Sentinel, which were immediately thrown into the wastebasket. I wanted those Sentinels, and asked for them before I left. I read them and passed them on to my friend.
