I first heard of Christian Science in 1915, and for about three months I attended the Sunday services and Wednesday evening meetings. At that time I was able to testify with deep gratitude to the healing of headeches of many years' standing. Later I was suddenly taken ill with appendicitis. I asked the relatives with whom I lived to send for a Christian Science practitioner. They did not accede to my request, however, for they were opposed to Christian Science, and a doctor was called. I had to undergo two severe operations within a year. I always had my textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, with me, and although at that time my understanding was small, still it was sufficient to make it possible for me to rise again after this seeming defeat.

Then I unfortunately strayed from Christian Science and later had to acknowledge the truth of the words of our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy (Science and Health, p. 569), "Alas for those who break faith with divine Science"!
