My first introduction to Christian Science was hearing of some healings that had taken place through its teachings. These so attracted me that I procured a copy of Science and Health to find out what it was that brought about the healings, but without any thought of physical healing for myself, although I was in need of it. In her Communion Hymn (Poems, p. 75) Mrs. Eddy writes, "Felt ye the power of the Word?" I can testify to having experienced "the power of the Word" to heal, for during the first two or three hours' reading of the Science and Health, I was healed of an internal complaint for which I had taken medicine daily for some months; and from that day I have taken no material remedies. During the second week's study I was healed of the cigarette habit of long standing. I had tried without lasting results to break this habit by will power, but then the desire for tobacco left me without conscious effort on my part. After six weeks I found that I did not need glasses which I had worn for twelve years. I am grateful for these healings and for many others that I have experienced since.

A the time Christian Science was first brought to my notice the religion in which I had been brought up had long ceased to satisfy me, so it was with rejoicing that I found Christian Science to be a religion which gave me a concept of God I could understand, and also a logical of my relationship to Him.
