My mother became interested in Christian Science through the healing of her sister. Although this healing impressed her so deeply that she began the study of Christian Science, it was not until a few years later that she had the opportunity to give it what she considered a real test.

I was two years old at the time, and one day, when alone in the kitchen, I decided to help myself to bread and butter with sugar on it. I could not find the sugar, so I climbed up on a chair to look on a high shelf, where I found a can of potash of lye which looked like sugar to me. I spread it on the bread and swallowed it. My screams brought my mother running, and when she saw the frightening picture, she hurried to the telephone to call a practitioner.
