It has long been my desire to express gratitude through the periodicals for the many blessings I have experienced through the study and application of Christian Science.

When this Science was first presented to me, more than thirty years ago, I was suffering from a stomach disorder which I had had from my boyhood days. I had tried several physicians, but received little help. Finally, I was asked to try Christian Science, but I was at first reluctant to do so. I seemed to have a great fear that if I took up Christian Science and visited a Christian Science practitioner, I should immediately have to give up several habits that seemed very pleasant to me. I had worked for a number of years in a liquor store and had developed a strong desire for intoxicating drinks. I was afraid that if I visited a Christian Science practitioner she would ask me to sign a pledge not to take any strong drinks, and I felt quite sure that I could not keep such a pledge.
