From the May 1913 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Recently while cutting a trail in a canyon in the mountains near by, it was necessary to remove a large quantity of what is called "poison oak," which grew in great profusion and to a considerable height. I worked for several hours in removing it, and during the following night I suffered so intensely that I called for help from a Christian Science practitioner over the telephone and was given absent treatment.
