I have felt for some time that I should send in my testimony, as it was through the reading of the testimonies in the Journal and Sentinel that I became interested in Christian Science. The healings were very interesting to me, as at all times I lived in a state of fear for my children, watching for symptoms of diseases of all kinds.

While I was away from home my father was healed in Christian Science of a very bad case of concussion of the brain, after which his letters were all about Christian Science, until finally I threw them into the fire; but he continued to write and send me copies of the Sentinel. Finally I read the New Testament very throughly and made up my mind that Jesus meant that we also should do the works that he did. I became very desirous of seeing the textbook so often spoken of in the periodicals, but those around me were so astonished at this wish that I was afraid to say much about it. Then we moved into another house and there, to my surprise as well as to my joy, I found a copy of that blessed textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. This was one of the greatest joys of my life, yet little did I know how much it would mean to me in the future. As soon as we were settled, I read almost continuously, doing only those things about the house that had to be done.
