From early childhood I was a great sufferer and under the care of doctors. Later I underwent two operations in the hope of some relief. These left me in a worse condition. Christian Science was presented to me about twenty years ago. While I felt glad for my friend, to whom great freedom had come, I was not ready for it. I accepted some literature and also an invitation to attend a lecture in The Mother Church, but I did not seem to grasp anything the lecturer said. However, the Christian Science Sentinel seemed wonderful to me, and I was grateful to read the testimonies of healing. I did not then realize that the great law of Love was operating for me. I was a member of an orthodox church and enjoyed the personal friendships made there, yet there was always an unsatisfied longing. In Christian Science that longing has been satisfied. "For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness."

Subsequently I attended a second Christian Science lecture, and the lecturer stated that anyone wishing to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, could borrow the book from any public library. This I did the following day, reading at every possible opportunity. As a result I began to look away from matter to Spirit. I soon gave up my belief in materia medica, but as I was under the care of a specialist, it was many weeks before I was willing to give him up.
