Christian Science came into my experience, in direct answer to prayer, more than thirty years ago. I was sick and in trouble, and sadly in need of help. I realized that God alone could help me, but I did not know how to reach Him, how to pray aright. I spent many months seeking God, and praying according to my highest understanding. Finally, Christian Science was presented to me and I was healed. First there was a very quick healing of an acute attack of grippe. This made such an impression on me that I commenced to read Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. Then, as I learned more of God and man, I experienced many healings. A great sense of fear and bondage left me, and the Bible became a loved and read book.

In these years Christian Science has never failed me. About a year ago I experienced a remarkable healing. While in New York City on business, I was stricken with what is called uremic poisoning. The room I occupied was in a home where nothing was known of Christian Science. I was a stranger in the city, and my children were many miles away. Early one morning I was seized with severe pain. I managed to get to the telephone and call a practitioner whom I had met in the Christian Science Reading Room. After a severe chill, followed by a fever, I lay in a stupor until late in the afternoon, and then I was moved into a home of Scientists. That night I had two more chills. After that I became unconscious. My children and a practitioner in Chicago were notified, and faithful and loving help was given throughout the night. When morning came, I wakened free from pain, but extremely weak. A Christian Science nurse had been called and was taking care of me. I improved rapidly, and in about two weeks was able to make the trip to Chicago.
