I received my first healing through Christian Science in boyhood, at the time of a so-called epidemic of influenza. As I lay in bed, my mother repeated to me these familiar words from the ninety-first Psalm: "A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee." Her understanding of this passage, together with my own sense of its appropriateness, soothed my fears, and I soon found myself healed. I was about ten years old at that time, and had been attending the Sunday school of a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, for one year.

Since then I have continued in good health, with Christian Science serving in my life more as a protective than as a curative influence. Sometimes skeptical friends tell me that I would have been well anyway, but the fact remains that I have grown up without tasting a drop of medicine or ever going to bed on account of illness of any kind. In every case, disease has been checked and healed before it could render me helpless. For this wonderful protection I express my deepest gratitude.
