From the July 1960 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In 1942, during my last year of nurses' training at the Sanatorium of the Christian Science Benevolent Association on Pacific Coast, I was persuaded by a friend who was also in training to go ice skating with her. During my second visit to the ice rink I fell and broke a bone in one of my legs just above the ankle. At the time I did not know it was broken.

I was taken back to the Sanatorium, where I called for the help of a Christian Science practitioner. After four days of treatment I decided to do my own metaphysical work. The leg had set crooked, and the ankle joint was rigid. Six weeks later I called for the help of the practitioner again.

I studied earnestly. I then found that I was without pain; and although the physical condition was unchanged, I no longer limped. Treatment was again discontinued, and I was able to remain on full-time duty until I graduated seven and a half months later.
