I have been interested in Christian Science for many years and have derived much good from it.

When I was a boy I had measles, which left me with weak eyes and a bad cough. The cough would come at the beginning of winter and last until warm weather, and because of my eyes I was kept out of school practically all of three years. After finishing the eighth grade of school I learned telegraphy and worked at it for several years, when my working arm gave out. A physician told me that on account of my eyes and the bad cough, besides my having to work at night, I would have to give up office work. I then went on the railroad to work as a brakeman; and as time went on the cough continued to grow worse, until I was not able to lie down to sleep, and could not retain even a swallow of water. Then the physician told my wife that I had chronic bronchitis, and that when a case like that became chronic the doctors might just as well give up, as there was no material remedy for it. The only chance I had was in a change of climate, and in my weakened condition I could not stand the trip.
