Christian Science was first presented...

Christian Science was first presented to me after I had had four major operations. Two of the operations were for the removal of obstructions caused by adhesions, necessitating the removal of parts of the intestines. I was told that another operation would be impossible, since it would not be safe to remove more of the intestines, and that if another obstruction should form, the only thing for me to do would be to go to a hospital, where I would be kept under opiates until I passed on.

I read Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy and was very much impressed. When the obstruction formed again and I was seriously ill, I decided to take my stand wholly for Christian Science, although I had not studied this Science daily, nor tried to solve any problems through it. A practitioner was called, and although I was in great pain, I was able to listen to every word that was said and to repeat everything I was told to say. We repeated the Lord's Prayer with the spiritual interpretation, given in Science and Health (pp. 16, 17), and "the scientific statement of being" (ibid., p. 468). In three hours all pain was gone, and in three days I was completely healed.
