In doing my housework one day I had to move a heavy article. Suddenly I felt something snap in my back, and there was much pain. I had a little knowledge of Christian Science, and immediately applied what I knew; although I did not fully understand all that I declared, I knew it to be the truth. In spite of the quick relief experienced, and the fact that I apparently had no further difficulty, I was troubled about the incident at times; but I said nothing to anyone, and in time forgot it.

A number of years later, after I had been passing through some trying circumstances of sorrow and loss, a condition appeared which indicated a misplacement of certain organs. I did not mention the condition to anyone, although my family knew I did not seem to be quite normal for a time. I was never once tempted to consult a physician or have a medical diagnosis, but I did ask for help in Christian Science from a worker of many years' experience in whom I had much confidence. She gave me absent treatment, but for a short while there was not very much improvement. Then I commenced to be much happier than I had been for a long time, and a general improvement was manifested. However, the main difficulty remained unchanged. One morning, quite forgetting myself, I rushed upstairs on an errand in a very happy frame of mind. Suddenly I was conscious that something inside of me lifted and went into place. For a moment I was breathless; there was no pain, just a natural adjustment, and all at once I realized that my body was normal.
