When I was refused a driver's license in 1949 because I had failed to pass the required eyesight test and had been ordered to obtain eyeglasses, I did not remonstrate, but took the first step toward compliance by making an appointment with an optometrist. Within the same hour I wrote to a Christian Science practitioner of my acquaintance and asked for treatment.

The practitioner replied as follows: "Your letter has just reached me and I shall be doing the work for you later today. One treatment should be sufficient.

"This is a fine opportunity for you to review the basic teachings of Science to see how clearly you can discern their truth. Especially emphasize to yourself that it is Mind, not matter, that sees, and that you get your vision direct from God, and therefore it must forever be changeless and perfect. This is a wonderful truth to recognize and be grateful for."
