It was during September, 1887, that I first heard of Christian Science. All my early life I had been troubled a great deal with neuralgia and catarrh. After the birth of my first child other diseases set in and grew worse until three years later they resulted in nervous prostration, leaving me a complete wreck. I tried everything which I thought would do me any good until I lost confidence in medicine. As I knew of no other remedy, I believed death to be very near at hand.

One day my husband said that a friend of his had told him of people calling themselves Christian Scientists who healed through prayer and did not use medicine. This friend had given him the address of a practitioner. To please my husband I consented to give Christian Science a trial. The day following my first treatment I walked several blocks to the practitioner's home, and the third day I was able to attend the state fair.
