Some time ago I was requested to tell why I am a Christian Scientist—similar requests as to the faiths or doctrines they advocated having been made to different ministers of our city.

I here quote a portion of what I said: When about fourteen years of age I was received into the Christian Church, and earnestly strove to lead a Christian life. A few years later I commenced studying for the ministry, and preached my first sermon while yet in my teens. I continued my studies, occasionally supplying a pulpit, until my health failed. The physicians whom I consulted said that I had overtaxed the brain by hard study. I was at times under the care of both allopathic and homeopathic physicians, who were exceptionally kind to me. I am confident they did all in their power to help me, and for their labor of love in my behalf I shall ever be grateful, but I grew worse. My condition became so alarming to my parents that they feared I could not live many days.
