At the time Christian Science Hall was opened in Concord, New Hampshire, my mother became slightly interested and attended several services there. Later, when many physicians failed to help me and a surgeon had examined me and said a serious operation was necessary, my mother insisted, in fact demanded, that I try Christian Science.

I remember how unkind this seemed to me, and I went to my room full of bitter hatred towards my mother. I angrily walked the floor, saying over and over: "My mother has no right to demand this of me; I'll be the laughingstock of all my friends; and how could Christian Science do anything for me? The surgeon saw the diseased condition of my body. How could that be changed without an operation?" I grew angrier and angrier until at last, exhausted, I threw myself upon the bed, and as I again asked, "How can it be possible for Christian Science to heal what is so diseased?" my room suddenly seemed filled with peace, and as distinctly as if a voice were speaking came the message, My child, God heals. All the anger and hatred left me, and I fell asleep ready and happy to do as my mother wished.
