It was in 1914 that Christian Science was first brought to my attention by my brother-in-law, who was visiting me from a distant city. He told me that if I would read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy he was sure it would make me well, and I answered that no book I could read would help me physically, as physicians and surgeons had told me I should always suffer. However, before he left for his home I had faithfully promised that when I was feeling better I would get the book and read it from beginning to end, although I was very sure that Christian Science could do nothing for me. During all the long years of suffering with inflammation of the rectum I had prayed that I might find the true God, and the peace "which passeth all understanding."

Weeks passed by and I did not get the book. Then came a time of discouragement, despair, and pain, and my little daughter tearfully asked me why I did not get the book. I replied that it could not do anything for me, and I was too sick to go and get it. How eagerly she said, "Let me get it for you." And to comfort her I consented. The following day she obtained Science and Health from the Boston Public Library. Although I was living in a suburb of Boston at the time, I did not know a Christian Scientist, had never heard of a church or Reading Room, and had never heard Mrs. Eddy mentioned.
