As a child I suffered severely from boils. At one time I had an attack which lasted with varying degrees of intensity for nearly a year—this in spite of medical aid, hot compresses, changed diet, and other material methods.

Years later I became a student of Christian Science, and learned "that the human mind alone suffers, is sick, and that the divine Mind alone heals" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 270). One day I noticed signs of an attack of boils which appeared to be much more severe than anything I had previously experienced. Some forty boils seemed to be starting simultaneously. I tried to know the truth about the situation, but a sense of fear remaining from earlier experiences with this malady hampered me.
