Among the many healings which...

Among the many healings which I have had in Christian Science I should like to tell of my first one. This healing took place in Glasveston, Texas, in 1910.

Before I knew of Christian Science, every spare moment I had I read and pondered the Bible. I was ill, and went to a hospital and later to a different one. One afternoon, as I was sitting on the veranda in the sun, it seemed as though someone spoke to me in these words: "You are here seeking help from the doctors, and you should be able to help them." I arose, dressed, and walked out of the hospital, knowing that I should never return to it again. I declared, "I am going to lean on God," reasoning that if Christianity meant no more to me in the future than it had in the past, I would rather be dead.
