From 1902 to 1907 I speculated in stocks, trying to accumulate a fortune, and was quite successful until the panic of 1907, which swept over the country, carrying with it my entire savings, and leaving me completely destitute, with many obligations and a family to support.
Christian Science was first brought to my attention in the year 1898, when I witnessed the healing of a sister who was freed from various ailments which had defied the skill of many physicians for years, but which yielded to Christian Science treatment in two weeks.
Some twenty years ago Christian Science was brought to my bedside while I was a patient in a hospital, where I had been taken to undergo an operation of a very serious nature, having been told by several physicians that unless I submitted to this operation I should be confined to a wheel chair for the rest of my life.
