When I first turned to Christian Science I was full of despair. We had spent all we had on eye treatments—medical, electric, osteopathic, chiropractic—but the condition had grown worse until I was almost blind. I knew nothing of Christian Science, but located a practitioner and went to talk to her. I shall never forget the sense of peace and hope with which I left her office.

As she requested, we obtained a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy at the Reading Room. Since I could not see a word of it, my husband read to me night and morning. In three weeks I could distinguish a letter here and there on the page, and in two months I was able to read for myself. I then spent hours daily reading the Bible, the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly, the periodicals, and Science and Health, and I read without fatigue. Gradually I took up my housework again and began to do much mending and plain sewing.
