About fifteen years ago I had my first healing in Christian Science, and it was an instantaneous one. I had always believed in prayer, so this experience seemed natural. It was not until two years later, however, that I was called upon to prove for myself the rules of this Science. One of whom I was very fond was killed in an aeroplane crash, and at first it seemed as if my whole world had crumbled. Through the work of a devoted practitioner I was led to read passages in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and was instantaneously healed of my grief. I received such a deep sense of God's everpresent love and of His goodness that all feeling of separation vanished. This healing was so complete that when my mother passed on, eight years later, I experienced no sense of loss.

During World War II, I was residing in an outpost of the British Empire, and I wished to get to the mother country to offer my services in the war effort. My desire was an unselfish one, and it seemed right, so I asked a practitioner for help. To human appearances I contemplated a very risky thing, but as our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, tells us in the opening sentence of Science and Health (p. vii), "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." I had very little money, and to get a passage at all seemed almost impossible; moreover, the Atlantic U-boat menace was at its height. I knew only one person in England, a single girl who had no home of her own, and I had no idea where I would live when I got there; also, I was informed that recruiting for the women's services had been closed.
