Before I knew anything of Christian Science...

Before I knew anything of Christian Science I had been troubled with a diseased condition on my fingers and thumbs. For ten years I had used many lotions and ointments and had been treated by three doctors; but, like the woman in the Bible, I "was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse" (Mark 5:26).

Then my elder son accepted a post away from home. One day, having a headache, he asked his landlady if she could give him an aspirin. She told him that she was a Christian Scientist and did not have any, and then explained a little of what Christian Science is. My son, who was healed of his headache as a result of this explanation, was very much interested, and the following Wednesday he attended a testimony meeting in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. Later, while reading Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, he was instantaneously healed of all desire to smoke.

When he came home, he told me of what had happened, and I asked him if he thought Christian Science could heal my fingers. He answered that I should see a practitioner and that he would write to one for me.
