During the last quarter of my senior year an instantaneous healing prefaced one of the most joyous and fruitful years of my life. I was finishing my college education a quarter later than my classmates, as I had taken time off during my junior year. That spring I was undaunted as I watched my friends go through the graduation ceremony. It was not until the end of the summer that I experienced a curious anxiety about returning to college.

Sometime before the day of class registration, my skin developed a rash that slowly spread over my entire body. I became increasingly distracted by a burning sensation, and I was soon unable to go about my enrollment duties or even to study. I sought a quiet place on campus where I studied "the scientific statement of being" in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. The first words are (p. 468), "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter."
