Early in 1955 a skin rash broke out and eventually covered my body. Even as I prayed each day to know the nothingness of matter, I became more and more mesmerized by the irritation. I had treatment from practitioners at different times but finally decided that I would continue the prayerful work myself, thinking that perhaps that was my need. At the time I was serving as clerk of a branch church, and I did not miss a day at my desk. Many days I would go from my work to a Christian Science Reading Room and then go home and go to bed, because it was uncomfortable to keep my clothes on.

During this time our daughter, who always helps lovingly about the house, was in Europe; so I had the whole care of the home, and plans had been made many months ahead for relatives, whom we had not seen for seventeen years, to visit us. The day they were to arrive I was baking a cake, and I was feeling so miserable physically that I did not know how I was going to go through with it.
