Christian Science first came into...

Christian Science first came into my life in 1907. For two years I was a shipmate of a Christian Scientist, and during that period I watched the good effects of his religion on his living. When I married and my wife and I had a daughter, our friend consented to be the godfather, and he presented the child with a copy of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. My wife and I began to read it. Very shortly thereafter, through earnest study of the Bible and the textbook, I was healed of a chronic complaint which for some years had troubled me and which the doctors had failed to cure or relieve. Shortly after this experience, through the faithful help of a Christian Science practitioner, I was healed of a broken nose.

Later I was sent to the East to organize and take charge of a naval base. The mental and physical stresses of that experience were great, but they were met through my own study of the Bible and Science and Health, and I realized more and more the importance and value of the daily study of the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly.
