Christian Science first found me about fourteen years...

Christian Science first found me about fourteen years ago. At that time I was suffering from chronic inflammations of the knee joint, which the doctors had designated as tuberculosis, and which they had been treating as such for almost a year and a half without my realizing any improvement. On the contrary, my condition perceptibly grew worse, and I was laboring under a great sense of depression. I was so helpless that I walked with crutches or was moved about in a wheel chair.

The doctors had told me that the only thing which could help me was the sun's rays. Accordingly, after a stay of nine months in a hospital, and after I had been faithfully lying in the sunlight for a whole summer, the doctors in charge were planning to send me to a higher location in the mountains in order to make use of the greater force of the sun's radiation. This seemed almost beyond our means at that time; and I also had no courage or hope left, for I had experienced all too clearly the failure of all material remedies. Months of invalidism at home and in the hospital, and unsuccessful treatment by nine doctors, had made me lose faith in any material help.
