In my early childhood a fall brought complications that physicians predicted would cause permanent invalidism. Later, severe heart and lung disorders developed for which I doctored many years, finally moving to California, hoping that the climate would be beneficial. The change gave me no relief, and the admission of a conscientious doctor that he could offer me no hope led me, as a last resort, to ask for a Christian Science treatment. Never shall I forget that treatment, and the experience that followed! The practitioner, after treating me, told me to go home and read the first and ninety-first Psalms, and "the scientific statement of being" on page 468 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, with the realization that every word in these statements was meant for me. I did as I was told, and read and reread them until I had them memorized. Still repeating these wonderful promises, I undressed and went to bed. The next thing I knew it was morning. I had slept comfortably all night, a thing I had not been able to do for many weeks, and I felt entirely well. To prove to myself that the healing was true, that very day I applied for life insurance, which I had never been able to secure. The physician who examined me pronounced me sound and recommended that the policy be granted.

This healing took place so suddenly that I did not grasp the necessity of daily study and church activities until several years later, when I met the young woman, an earnest student of Christian Science, who afterwards became my wife. Since then, membership in both The Mother Church and a branch church, class instruction and attendance at Association meetings, have been important steps in our experience together, and have been of great help in solving our daily problems and rearing our children.
