I wish to express my gratitude to God, to Christ Jesus, the Way-shower, and to Mary Baker Eddy, who has given to us the real understanding of our Father-Mother God, and of ourselves as the Father's perfect ideas. I am very grateful that this understanding can be gained by reading and studying Science and Health. I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing, but through witnessing a demonstration of the healing truth as taught in this Science.

From my youth I have had a knowledge of the Scriptures, as I was very active in Christian work in Scotland before I was twenty-one years of age. But as time went on and the many daily problems in life made their appearance, due to my lack of proper spiritual understanding I soon began to doubt and at the same time earnestly question God as I regarded Him then, likewise to question my elders, but received no satisfaction.

I had never heard anything about Christian Science at that time. Finally, we were led to come to America. About seven years later my wife became so sick that the doctors ordered an operation, which at that time would have been a hardship to us, regardless of results. Then a friend who had been healed of stomach trouble through Christian Science came to see us. Soon we saw the great Physician as the healer of all diseases. My wife was healed, and she soon became a member of a Christian Science church.
