My mother had been in constant pain from sciatica for many weeks. The doctors had given her drugs, which soon had little effect. Then one day a Christian Science friend came to see us, and after being with Mother a little while, she asked if we had thought of having Christian Science help. She remarked to me, "If you want to keep your mother with you, it is time you did something about it." When our friend had gone, I asked Mother to try Christian Science, but she refused. Her reason was that she was not good enough.

That night was a very bad one for her; and when I rang the doctor in the morning, he said he could do no more for her. It was then we decided, as a last resort, to try Christian Science. We asked a practitioner for help, and she immediately closed her office and came to us. She talked, read from the Bible and from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, prayed for Mother, and before leaving lent us the textbook, Science and Health.

After she had gone, Mother felt a little better, but that night she woke me and said: "I can't stand it any longer. What shall I do?"
