From the January 1890 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Your repeated invitations to give to the Journal profitable experiences of the efficacy of Christian Science principles, has prompted me to submit the result of a personal effort at self-treatment, begun with little light and imposed by the urgency of pressing need.

I have known of this blessed Science four years, and more; but while I thought myself benefited and was greatly interested, I failed to trust entirely to its sustaining power and consequently found only partial relief.

My present light, which I value so much, came to me through recent experiences, which followed a more careful study of the teachings of Science and Health, and a more earnest, determined endeavor to realize in consciousness its teachings. This determination was greatly stimulated by ideas and articles in recent journals, beginning with last January.
