In 1928 I became ill, and I also suffered losses in my business and in the stock market. Feeling that we might lose our home, I decided to rent part of it. The only one who responded to my advertisement was a Christian Scientist, who had a small family. She was much impressed with our home and said: "It is lovely, but I don't know whether we should rent it. I feel we would be depriving you folks of your comfort." We assured her that we were ready to share our home and that we should like to have her and her family as tenants.

Soon after she moved in she inquired of my wife if anything was wrong, as I had passed her by without even speaking. My wife explained that this was not my usual attitude, but that I was not feeling very well. She then asked if I would be willing to read something that she could give me which would be helpful. My wife replied that she thought I would, and the woman left a list of Bible passages, and some Christian Science literature. I became much uplifted by these, and she later told me of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and invited me to attend a Wednesday testimony meeting in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist.

I attended the meeting, enjoyed it, and immediately bought a Bible, Science and Health, and a Christian Science Quarterly, with which I started reading the weekly Lesson-Sermons. In just one week I was healed of stomach trouble, constipation, and a rupture which I had had for about thirty-five years. I also overcame the habits of smoking and social drinking.
