I was reared in accordance with...

I was reared in accordance with the teachings of Christian Science, and from childhood I learned to apply its teachings in solving the problems I had to face, either at school or concerning health. The years I spent in Sunday School were beneficial, and in the course of them Science helped me many times to demonstrate love and understanding in the affairs of childhood and youth.

When I was eighteen years old, I entered a university and began to come in contact with young people whose habits of thought and life differed from the high standard required by divine Principle. Within a short time the influence of university life made itself felt on me, and since I was the only Christian Scientist I was ashamed because my behavior was different from that of my fellow students. Most of the students did not have any religion, and a religious person was considered a reactionary. I would not tell anyone that I was a Scientist, and I began to skip Sunday School and to neglect my daily duties as a Christian Scientist.
