According to the world's way...

According to the world's way of counting, I am now over one hundred and two years old. Christian Science found me when I was a young woman of twenty-three. I had been given up by the doctors, who said I had quick consumption. Each day I was wrapped up well and put on the porch.

I drove the horse and cut the lawn and was quite normal again. A short while later I had class instruction.
