While I was spading the ground,...

While I was spading the ground, preparing for a garden in the spring of the year, a blister formed on my hand; it later broke as I continued to turn the ground over. Being a new student of Christian Science, I thought that all that was necessary for healing was to repeat "the scientific statement of being," given on page 468 of Science and Health. This was not the case, as I learned five days later. The hand pained severely, and the swelling became noticeable.

At that time our company employed a nurse, and the ruling was that a case such as this should be reported. Being obedient, I reported to the nurse, who became very much alarmed at the condition of my hand and voiced the possibility of my losing it. This resulted in my becoming fearful. I left the office and returned home about noon and related the details to my wife, who said that I should see a Christian Science practitioner promptly.
