It is a great thing to be able to testify that Christian Science takes away the sting from death. About two years ago my only child, a daughter of seventeen, passed on in an automobile accident. Often when our happy companionship had been pointed out as an unusual thing in these modern days, I remarked that it was the result of our having grown up in Christian Science together. I had begun to study when she was only a few years old, and often her unbiased thought had grasped the meaning of the simple truth more quickly than mine.

Faced with the seeming loss of the most beautiful thing that the world had ever given me, life itself seemed meaningless and full of pain. Through the loving help of Christian Scientists, and especially of one loyal student in the small town in which I was living, I was enabled to go through the first days and weeks of this experience in a manner worthy of one who for many years had professed Christian Science. I had an earnest desire not to fail the Cause which I loved so well, and as First Reader of a little circle of students I carried on my work with but one absence from my post—the Sunday morning on which the accident occurred.
