Humbly and gratefully I want to acknowledge some of the many blessings divine Love has brought me through Christian Science. It would take up too much space to tell of the various experiences leading me to this glorious Science. It is enough to say that after reading The Life of Mary Baker Eddy by Sibyl Wilbur I felt I had at last arrived.

However, there came a time of great mental distress; and I asked to see a practitioner of Christian Science. She came on the request of the friend who had introduced me to Miss Wilbur's book. The practitioner, after asking me a few questions, began to pray. I too closed my eyes. I tried to say the Lord's Prayer but stopped after the words (Matt. 6:10), "Thy kingdom come."

Presently, after the practitioner had left, I had a most marvelous experience. It was one of great mental uplift and purification. It was as though I were being lifted up on a tall mountaintop in a strong, glorious atmosphere and being shaken through and through by a mighty wind.
