In the latter part of 1931 I was employed by the general contractor in the field office at the site of the new building for the Christian Science Publishing Society in Boston. My work brought me in contact daily with a consecrated Christian Scientist, who patiently answered my many questions about his religion, of which I had previously known nothing.

Soon I attended a Christian Science lecture in The Mother Church, and shortly thereafter I started to read the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. The new concept of God which I gained from this book changed my atheistic leanings completely; and within two days from the time I started reading it the tobacco habit, which had bound me for several years, left me, never to return.

For about five years I had been suffering from a very painful spinal condition, and, because it seemed to be getting worse, I sought the advice of a doctor. He told me that it was a tubercular condition and that an operation should be performed immediately. Instead, I went to see a Christian Science practitioner. She treated me through prayer, with the result that after the second visit I was completely healed.
