I should like to tell you how I was led to become interested in Christian Science.

For many years I was employed by eminent physicians, serving in the capacity of special assistant when operations in the hospitals or at the office were performed. One day a man came to the office who had an ugly sore on his lip, which the doctors pronounced cancer. They did all they could for him, but the man passed on. This incident made a lasting impression on me.

Many years later a sore place came on my lip. I did what I could for it, applying the remedies which I had learned of through my nursing experience, and when it did not get better I went to a physician. I doctored for about a year. During this time the doctor sent to Europe for a special medicine, and when he applied it he made the remark, "If this does not heal it, I do not know what will." At a later visit he made a remark which made me give up all hope. All this time I had been holding in my consciousness a mental picture of the case of the man whom the doctors had failed to cure. Since that time the truth of the statement by Mrs. Eddy has been proved to me conclusively (Science and Health, p. 411), "Whatever is cherished in mortal mind as the physical condition is imaged forth on the body."
