From the time I was eight years...

From the time I was eight years old until I was twenty-one I had a stomach ailment which a doctor told me came from an inherited nervous trouble.

About the year 1898 I had become so sickly that I wished to die if I could not get well soon. At that time I was told of a Christian Science practitioner, living a mile or so from my home, who had healed a man of Bright's disease after he had been given but three days to live. I went to see her and had her start treatment that same evening, after she had assured me that it is God who does the work. She said her only prescription was for me to read the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, for an hour or more each day.
