It was during the influenza epidemic...

It was during the influenza epidemic of 1918 that my mother turned to Christian Science when it was feared that my sister, then a child of six years, would pass on with this disease. Through Christian Science she experienced a quick and complete healing. About the time of her recovery I too contracted the disease, but with Christian Science treatment my confinement to a sickbed lasted for only one day.

I am grateful for the years spent as a pupil in a Christian Science Sunday School. This was followed by class instruction.

In 1941 I felt impelled to take my place along with others who had volunteered their services to aid the war effort. Being a qualified private pilot, I was offered an opportunity to participate in the training of aircrew for active service. In order to avail myself of this position, I would be required to move with my wife to a small town a thousand miles away. Since our first child was expected about the time this move was to take place, I questioned the advisability of accepting the offer.
