As a young man in New Zealand...

As a young man in New Zealand I became dissatisfied with the life I was leading in the city and took a job as a shepherd. Much as I enjoyed this occupation, the urge to carry on my career as an artist became so great that I returned to the city and was shortly afterwards introduced to Christian Science. Imagine my gratitude on reading in the first few lines of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (Pref., p. vii), "The wakeful shepherd beholds the first faint morning beams, are cometh the full radiance of a risen day." That day was rich with blessings, and progress followed with reformation and healing.

One healing I should especially like to give thanks for was that of smoking. For several years after I began to study Science this troublesome habit persisted, but I do believe the many sincere efforts I made to overcome it contributed to the final effortless solution.
