I would like to tell what the reading aloud of Science and Health did for my boy, seven years of age, at a time when manifested croup itself. He came in from his play one evening in a serious condition, — a high fever, and coughing in such a way that I realized that something must be done at once. I was alone and had no one to whom I could turn for assistance; but I did have my book, Science and Health.

I put the little one to bed and had seated myself to read and realize the Truth when the bell rang. The caller proved to be a physician, who had come to see my father on business. My son was coughing very badly, and the physician remarked, "That is croup. You must use hot applications immediately, and if he is not better before midnight, something else must be done."

I said nothing but realized that mortal mind could make no laws for that child, for God's law was the only law, and God the only law-giver, and His laws were good.
