Some fifty years ago, out of sheer curiosity, I picked up a small black book lying on a table in the home of the woman with whom I was staying. It was Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. It meant absolutely nothing to me at the time. I had never heard the words Christian Science.

I was then wearing glasses and had been told by a fine oculist I would need them all my life. After reading but a few minutes at different times in this book, I discovered I no longer needed glasses to read. Later, at the request of my mother, I had the same man test my eyes and he pronounced them normal. I sew and read today without aid. To me this has always remained definite proof of the efficacy of the truth that speaks to us from the pages of Science and Health, as well as from the Bible, and the durability of this truth.

More recently, while I was visiting a friend in the country, one morning I suddenly found it impossible either to stand or walk. As I was a visitor far from home, it seemed wise to call for Christian Science treatment, which I did. I telephoned a practitioner at some distance. In a matter of hours the mesmerism of fear was broken, and I was free of all the symptoms of illness. This healing has remained permanent.
