In October, 1895, my daughter was healed. She had been an invalid for four years, and we had resorted to all material means that we thought would be of any benefit to her. She was taken to a hospital in Clinton, Iowa, and had to undergo a severe operation, but was sent home no better than when she went away. She had been home about two weeks when a lady who had been helped in Christian Science called, and advised her to go to a Scientist living in Des Moines, Iowa. We decided it was our last resort. She went and took one week's treatment, and is now well and strong.

I will write a few words for myself. The lady who called to see my daughter brought Science and Health and some Journals, and I read them. I had been a member of the Orthodox Church for eight years, but never felt satisfied. When I found the truth, as it is taught in Christian Science, I felt it was just what I was hungering for, and I praise God for leading me to Christian Science.
