When I first read Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, more than twenty years ago, I was superintendent of the municipal nurses in St. Louis, Missouri. While reading this book I was very much inspired — so much so that I read it a second time, then a third: After that, I was thoroughly convinced that this beautiful religion is the truth. Consequently, I started to read some of Mrs. Eddy's other writings.

Just as I was becoming very much interested and sincerely eager to learn more about Christian Science, the World War broke out. Immediately I volunteered for foreign service and was accepted. I enlisted with the American Nursing Expeditionary Force. Shortly after that I sailed for France. Our tent hospital was located on the race track in Rouen. Here I worked for approximately two years, with the exception of the time in which I was transferred to the advanced areas about four kilometers behind the firing line.
