One Sunday morning, early in...

One Sunday morning, early in September. 1942, while I was having a bath, the entire length of my right side became completely paralyzed. I was quite helpless, and had to be lifted out of the bath and back to bed. I had no feeling at all on this side, and could not so much as lift a finger. My voice was so affected that I could not speak plainly, and others had difficulty in understanding what I tried to say. Throughout the day I tried to help myself as we are taught in Christian Science, but was not very successful in collecting my thoughts, so at about six o'clock I telephoned to my daughter, a Christian Science practitioner, who lived about eighty miles away, for help. An hour later I began to feel the effects of the treatment, and in the evening my voice became quite normal. I passed a fairly good night, and the next morning I awoke early to find that the paralysis had entirely disappeared and my right side was again normal in every respect; and not only that, but I was feeling stronger and better in other ways than I had done for perhaps two years past.

To mortal sense I am an octogenarian but it is a long time since I have been in bondage to the belief of old age. To calm the fears of some of those around me I consented to remain in bed most of Monday, but on Tuesday I was out at my usual occupation of gardening, "growing food for victory." as the slogan is. I have not had the slightest suggestion of this condition since, and indeed continue to feel stronger and more energetic than before the attack occurred. My healing made a great impression on the few who knew about it so much so that one of them announced her intention to attend Christian Science services and to obtain a copy of the textbook. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.
