In the Preface to "Pulpit and Press,"...

In the Preface to "Pulpit and Press," a book which Mrs. Eddy dedicated to the children who contributed to the Mother's Room in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, she writes (p. vii), "Three quarters of a century hence, when the children of to-day are the elders of the twentieth century, it will be interesting to have not only a record of the inclination given their own thoughts in the latter half of the nineteenth century, but also a registry of the rise of the mercury in the glass of the world's opinion." A recent reading of these words of Mrs. Eddy's arrested my thought and impelled me to testify to the healing efficacy of Christian Science; for my first conscious recognition of Christian Science and of its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy, was as one of these little contributors, who were named "Busy Bees." My older brothers and I gave our small savings each Sunday toward this fund, and it gives us much satisfaction today to know we had this great privilege.

At the time I was born, death sentences were laid upon me and upon my mother, because she was suffering from a complication of incurable diseases. She had had many doctors and had tried many healing methods, and when the doctors finally gave her up to die, she turned to God and asked Him to show her a way to live. Shortly after this she read a newspaper account of someone being healed through reading a book called "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. She questioned everyone who came to the door about this book, with the result that the milkman, who knew a woman on his route who was a Christian Scientist, procured a copy of Science and Health for her.
