A year ago I was so burdened with physical claims and mental depression that I wanted to die, hoping beyond the grave to find rest and peace, for after trying for six years to gain good health I was almost exhausted. A physician who knew something of Christian Science said it was the only thing that could help me, and I have found it the true prescription.

My claims were backache almost continually, pains in head and neck, indigestion, swelling and inflammation of the feet, fainting-spells, great fear and worry at times, melancholy, and hysterics. Months passed and I seldom even smiled. I was discouraged at being told that I was naturally a frail person. I have been healed of all these claims by nine treatments and faithfully reading Science and Health since October, 1897. I gladly accepted Christian Science teachings, and am thankful to learn, as early as this, that it is sinful to believe that there is intelligence in matter. I have learned how to be a better Christian in this one year than in all the twenty-six years I spent in the Episcopal Church.
