Christian Science was introduced to me when I was serving as a nursing sister in a London hospital. At the time I was undergoing a period of great mental stress. This was quickly overcome through Science, and I eventually left medical nursing to become a teacher. I taught in the schools for thirty years, and during the latter part of my teaching career I was in charge of a unit for children considered to be disturbed. Throughout those years Christian Science was a constant help to me.

Several years ago I had arranged to visit a friend two hundred miles away. Before leaving home I felt very unwell and was unable to walk without the aid of a stick. Still, feeling that the journey was an important one, I set off. I prayed for myself during the trip and on arrival felt somewhat better. After a short time, however, I experienced severe pain in my joints and felt very feverish. I could not walk.

My friend telephoned a Christian Science practitioner, who asked me to come to the telephone to speak to her. With difficulty I reached the foot of the stairs and took the phone. I told her that I had all the symptoms of rheumatic fever and mentioned what I had learned about this disease as a medical nurse.
