I was about nineteen when I turned to Christian Science for help. A year or so before this my father had been healed of inflammatory rheumatism by Science, after all material aid had failed. My first healing was of jaundice and a serious gall bladder condition from which a physician said I would be many months recovering. I asked for treatment from the practitioner who had helped my father, and in a short time I was completely free from this ailment. I then began attending the Christian Science Sunday School.

For many years I had worn glasses with thick, dark lenses, and just before becoming interested in Science had gone to an oculist for stronger ones. I was told that soon I should not be able to get glasses powerful enough to do me any good, because I had astigmatism, farsightedness, conjunctivitis, and a muscular defect, all of which were apt to grow worse as I got older. I had been attending the Christian Science Sunday School for about three months when I awakened one morning so clearly realizing I no longer needed glasses that I immediately laid them aside. That was many years ago, and I have never since needed them. About five years ago an oculist told me that my eyesight was perfect.
