It is with much joy and gratitude that I here trace the footsteps that have led me to a more consecrated study of Christian Science. I am the youngest of a large family, and at an early age I became afflicted with what was afterwards diagnosed as infantile paralysis. My entire right side was affected, so that I could not talk, walk, swallow, or sleep. The physicians worked very earnestly to effect a cure, but they were unable even to relieve the pain. Finally they gave up the case, and told my parents that if I lived, I should be a hopeless cripple for the remainder of my life.

In this hour of despair, a friend, who was a Christian Science practitioner, heard of the case, and came to see my mother. After talking with her a few minutes, she asked to see me. She entered the room and, without a word, lifted me from the lap of my sister, and began to talk softly to us about God. I relaxed completely in her arms, and when she laid me down I went to sleep for the first time in weeks.
