I did not turn to Christian Science...

I did not turn to Christian Science for healing, but rather for a better understanding of God and of man's relationship to Him. However, after taking up the study of this Science, I was healed of migraine. That was in 1928, and since then I have not missed one day from my office because of illness. This proved to me that when we apply its teachings, Christian Science is not only a curative but a preventive.

In June, 1959, when I was abroad, I was a guest at a hotel at the time it burned to the ground. The guests were awakened at about three in the morning by someone's shouting: "Fire! All out!" Then the fire alarm sounded. I opened my door, which was on the third floor, and found the hall so filled with smoke I could hardly see the other side of it. I turned back to my room and picked up my handbag containing my passport, tickets, and money. I put on my bedroom slippers and coat and started for the stairs, but found them completely enveloped in flames. I was one of a group of fourteen on a conducted tour; and as I turned to retrace my steps, I recognized another woman in the group who seemed to be in a state of panic. I urged her to join me in finding a way out.
