About nine years ago I was drawn to Christian
Science by a relative whose many afflictions had given
place to health and harmony, and whose loving gratitude
was reflected in every word and deed. The
thought came to me, God indeed healeth all our
My first reading of Science and Health was without
understanding. I was full of darkness and gloom, and
it was laid aside for a time. The good seed had been
sown, however, and erelong the reading was resumed,
and with such interest that my afflictions disappeared
"like mist before the morning sun." Asthma (thought
to be hereditary), neuralgia in an aggravated form, and
besides these, the tobacco and liquor habit of many years'
standing left me. Bless the Lord, "He sent his word"
and healed me, - for the reading of Science and Health
brought to my consciousness the truth that makes free. -
