My first healing in Christian Science took place while I was away at college. After weeks of tormenting fear I suffered a complete nervous collapse. Convinced that the physicians could do nothing for me, and knowing that Christian Science had healed my mother two years previously, I called for help from a local practitioner. Her first visit gave me such a clear realization of the omnipresence of God, good, that the acute conditions were healed at once. The following day I was able to do as the practitioner had asked and attend all my classes, and later I walked over a mile to her home. While it was some months before the complete healing took place, I never lost the conviction which came to me at that time, that Christian Science could and would heal my bodily ills and at the same time answer those questions about the cause and cure of the world's woes that had troubled me for so long. In the years since then, this conviction has had ample corroboration in my own experience and in that of other members of my family.

One experience stands out. In the summer of 1925 I accompanied my brother's wife and her two children on a visit to her people in France. About three weeks before we were due to return home, she underwent an operation in a hospital. It was arranged that I should go there for a few days to keep her company.
