As I look back over the years, I know that no one who ever took up the study of Christian Science could have been more grateful than I am that Christian Science came into my life when it did. I was a young girl and most unhappy with the old religious belief that God sent men illness and tragedy. When I heard of Christian Science, I immediately purchased a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy and eagerly and hopefully began its study. The comfort it gave me has remained.

I have reason to believe that I was the first person in the little town where I lived to take up the study of Christian Science. Since I moved from there nearly fifty years ago, an active Christian Science Society has been established that has recently dedicated its church.

I should like to tell of two healings I experienced through reliance on Christian Science. A number of years ago I was a librarian serving in the Reading Room of the church to which I belong. One particular day I had studied and prayed for the Reading Room for several hours, being oblivious to everything else. I left the Reading Room to go to my car.
