In 1909 I became interested in Christian Science through my own healing. I had consented to have treatment at the request of my mother, who had lost faith in medicine and had taken up the study of Christian Science. To me, then, it was just another remedy to be tried. I was supposed to be following a sister who had passed on two years before with tuberculosis. I had treatment in Christian Science for three weeks and was healed.

Following this I had many instantaneous healings. It seemed as if my physical ailments became magnified, to disappear as quickly as the light of Truth was turned on them. I was able to lay aside glasses which I had worn for three years. This healing was accomplished overnight, and the glasses have not been needed since. These instantaneous healings convinced me that Christian Science is a remedial agent, and created in me a desire to put forth vigorous effort in study to understand and utilize its divine Principle.
