When I was about twelve years old, my parents took up the study of Christian Science. I was impressed by my stepfather's subsequent healing of hereditary asthma, from which he had suffered all his life. My mother had come from New Hampshire, where I was born, to California, hoping to rear me in this state, for the doctor had told her that I would never live to grow up.

My parents made no attempt to interest me in Christian Science, although they began to attend a branch church. I was permitted to continue my attendance at the orthodox church of which I was already a member.
