I am a little girl eight years old, and I want to tell you what I have done for God. I was at grandma's house and I went out in the kitchen and Annie, the girl, had a headache, and she asked me to treat her, because I had treated her once before. I went into the dining-room and declared that God was Good, and didn't make headaches, therefore Annie did not have any headache, and mortal mind couldn't say she had any. After five or ten minutes' treatment I went out and asked her how she was; she said she was very much better but not all healed. Then I realized Truth a little more and went out to play, and after dinner I went again into the kitchen and she said was all well.

One night while I was at grandma's I had a claim of sore throat, and grandma is not a Christian Scientist, and mamma was here in Boston, and so I began to cry. Just as soon as I began to cry I thought of God and stopped right off, and began to demonstrate. I thought God was all, for Life was all Good, and matter had no place, it didn't exist, and I said, "Get behind me, Satan," and then in a few minutes I felt all well and haven't had any sore throat since.
