I had been left without a ray of hope when Christian Science was presented to me. I had consumption of the lungs, and after giving me months of medical treatment, two doctors said that they could do no more for me.

I protested to her that I did not want anything to do with what I then thought was a fanatical religion. Later, however, I decided to go to please her because she had been so kind to me. Firmly I held to this thought, "They cannot talk me into Christian Science."
