I was a member of an orthodox church, but I scoffed at what I thought Christian Science to be. When in the Orient in 1928 I met a spiritually-minded woman, whom I grew to love, never dreaming she was a Christian Science practitioner. Later I spoke to her of the fear of a long ocean voyage, for I had always been ill when on the water. She assured me that I need not be ill and told me why; then she told something of this wonderful Science and said that she would help me. I consented, but without any faith in what she said. The long voyage home was most harmonious—the first such I had ever known. This healing of seasickness has proved to be permanent.

After this experience I entered our three small children in the Christian Science Sunday School and attended my first service. I thought it restful and good for some people, but I was so steeped in worldly pleasures and false appetites that my eyes were closed to spirituality. A maid who was a Christian Scientist was in our home, and she and the children took care of their troubles beautifully. I remember that when the little boy stepped on a rusty nail the maid and he overcame any ill effects. The same boy was healed of bed-wetting through Science, when treatments from some of the best physicians had been without benefit.
