334 / 358

About twelve o'clock at night, I saw a vision in the form

of a man with wings, standing at the foot of my bed, —

wings partly spread, — one arm hanging loosely at his

side, and one extended above his head. At the same

time there was a bright light shining in my room, which

made all objects shine like fire. I knew where I was,

and was not afraid. The vision (for such it was), after

looking directly at me for some time, spoke this one sen-

tence, and then disappeared: "Do right, and thou shalt

be saved."

I immediately tried to live according to that precept,

and found relief in proportion to my understanding.

I soon after learned of Christian Science. One of my

we know. After two years and a half of study, I thought,

as many beginners think, that I had travelled over the

worst part of this narrow path.

Soon after, it came about that I was separated from

every one who had ever heard of Christian Science; and,

as I lived in the country, no one came to visit me for
