From the June 1903 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In recalling the experiences of some of my earlier efforts to demonstrate the truth as taught in Christian Science, I am reminded of my first attempts to meet the suggestions of animal magnetism. I remember that for a time the very name, animal magnetism, seemed potent to inspire in me such fear that my most earnest effort was often hardly sufficient to re-establish the sense of harmony; and even when the victory had been won, there came no sense of assurance that I should be able to conquer in the next encounter.
