From the July 1912 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I am one of a large family in which there was a great deal of sickness, my father and five brothers and sisters having passed away. I became so accustomed to illness that I did not expect to be free from it, and my religious training taught me that God sent sickness, as it was good for our development; that I must not expect to be happy in this life, but if I bore my lot with patience, I would reap my reward after death.
