I wish to express my deep gratitude for the privilege which is offered us through the study and practice of Christian Science of experiencing, according to our understanding, "the glorious liberty of the children of God" (Rom. 8:21). It is a great joy to me to learn of God, divine Principle, and of man, who reflects His intelligence and infinite goodness.

Before I knew of Christian Science I had lost all faith in God. Although I felt that the universe must he governed by a force superior to matter. I refused to believe in a God who was capable of creating the conditions which I saw about me. I had no hope, except that I considered death a liberator, and I was often tormented by thoughts of suicide. I was living in bondage to the so-called physical senses.

Among other things, I had been subjected to X-ray treatment in the hope of easing my suffering, attributed to weakness of the spine, which I had had since childhood. Instead of lessening the suffering, these treatments, according to the doctors, had affected other organs. There did not seem to be any hope of healing for this new problem, and I was only plunged more deeply into despair.
