When I became interested in...

When I became interested in Christian Science in 1923 I was passing through a very difficult experience because of the failure of an old-established family business, of which I was the head. Three years of anxiety had made me a disagreeable and very worried individual, suffering from many ailments. A lifelong stomach ailment, together with constipation, hemorrhoids, and sick headaches, was causing continuous pain. The many material remedies I had tried had been of no avail. I had had two nervous breakdowns, and I suffered from varicose veins and a double hernia, as well as from three complaints of the eyes. In addition I was an inveterate smoker. As a result of my condition I was rejected as unfit for any form of military service during the First World War.

I was instantaneously healed of the stomach complaint in one treatment by a Christian Science practitioner. This occurred within a week of my first attendance at a service in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, and the healing has been permanent. Shortly afterwards all the other ailments were healed also, and all desire for tobacco and alcohol left me. Subsequently I was passed by five doctors as a first-class risk for life insurance.
