The Science of Getting Rich Born shortly after the civil war, Wallace suffered a great deal in his early years, but this prompted him to study various religious beliefs and philosophies including Descartes, Spinoza, Leibnitz, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Swedenborg, and Emerson. Through this exhaustive study and application of principle, he discovered the truth of New Thought and put it into practice in his own life.
Partly to clarify things for himself, Wallace began to write books outlining New Thought principles and practice. His personal practice centered on creative visualisation. His daughter Florence wrote in a letter that Wallace, "wrote almost constantly. It was then that he formed his mental picture. He saw himself as a successful writer, a personality of power, an advancing man, and he began to work toward the realization of this vision.

I shall never forget the morning he came home. It was Christmas. Mother had put her last dollar into a cuff box and we had placed it beneath an evergreen branch which served for our Christmas tree and which we had illuminated with tallow candles and strung with popcorn.
Finally Father came. With that beautiful smile he praised the tree, said the cuff box was just what he had been wanting - and took us all in his arms to tell us of the wonderful social message of Jesus, the message which he later embodied in "A New Christ. For years his life was cursed by poverty and the fear of poverty. He was always scheming and planning to get for his family those things which make the abundant life possible.
When we came to Elwood Indiana three years ago, Father began a Sunday night lectureship inn Indianapolis. This was our only source of income.
