My parents became interested in Christian Science when I was quite young, and notable among my early healings was that of scarlet fever, which took place in a little over a week. It was not until I was in my teens, however, that I really became interested in this religion through a Christian Science practitioner who had a great understanding of young people. To him I owe a firm grounding in the teachings of this Science.

Although my husband is a keen believer in another religion, harmony has pervaded our home, and we have each enjoyed freedom to participate in the activities of our respective churches. Our son is being brought up in his father's religion; our daughter attends a school for Christian Scientists.

On one occasion our daughter came home from the day school she then attended with a rash. Twentyfour hours later it had not yielded to Christian Science treatment, and to satisfy my husband, the doctor was called in He said that although she had a rash, she had none of the other symptoms of measles. Eight days later he signed the certificate necessary for her return to school, saying that she had never been infectious, because she had never had the symptoms believed to make measles infectious. Also the rash was gone.
