29 pp., printed on textured, heavy-stock paper.

Dimensions: 7″ x 5″

Joseph Eastaman, C.S.D., a sea captain, became interested in Christian Science in 1884 and turned to Mary Baker Eddy for help in healing his seriously ill wife. She suggested that he attend one of her classes and learn how to heal his wife himself. Captain Eastaman did so, and Mrs. Eastaman was indeed healed through his work. The couple soon became practitioners of Christian Science. Captain Eastaman was appointed by Mrs. Eddy as one of the first four members of the Christian Science Board of Directors in 1892. His series of articles “The Travail of My Soul,” first published in the January, February, March, and May 1892 issues of The Christian Science Journal, tells of his experience as a sea captain and his introduction to Christian Science.
