It is with fond recollections and profound gratitude that I look back over the years to my first physical healing in Christian Science. The occasion was at a time when I was much in need of spiritual enlightenment, and fortunately I had heard enough of the good about Christian Science to be receptive to its teachings and willing to test its healing efficacy.

Bedridden for three days with a severe attack of influenza, I had suffered with a fever and high temperature, and not finding any relief from material remedies I turned for help to Christian Science. While I was entirely ignorant of the means employed to effect a healing in Christian Science, nevertheless I had heard from time to time of the marvelous cures attributed to its healing power through prayer. I had heard that there is a law of God that is applicable to the healing of sickness; that this law is ever present, unchangeable, and available now to deliver men from bondage; that it is their inalienable right and unrestricted privilege to come into consonance with this law, if they so desire. I had heard it said that Mind, not matter, governs man, and that health is a condition of Mind, not a condition of matter. These were the seeds of Truth that had been planted in my consciousness long before I became ill. In my low mental state these thoughts recurred to me, and when those about me asked what might be done to relieve my suffering, I said, "Let us try Christian Science." Immediately a practitioner was consulted, absent treatment was given, and in a remarkably short time a change for the better took place. I went into a peaceful sleep—sleep I had so much desired. Quiet and rest prevailed. Soon the fever left me, my temperature became normal, and those about me could see the transformation. I awoke feeling much better, desiring nourishment, and I was completely healed.
