Typhoid Fever

A short time ago I received a telegram to come at once to Bowie, Texas, as my sister was not expected to live. There was no train out till nearly two o'clock next morning, so I did not arrive till between five and six. She was very low with typhoid fever. I had only been there a few minutes when it was agreed that the doctor should be dismissed and the case turned over to me. Even my father, who had bitterly opposed Science, gave consent. Anything to save his child. Had my sister been dead the family and friends could scarcely have expressed more sadness. I gave her the first treatment about six o'clock, and by nine o'clock she was laughing and talking and eating an apple. The next day (Thursday) she went to the dining-room and took dinner with family. Friday morning she was up and dressed as early as I was. Saturday she cleaned up my mother's room, making the bed, sweeping, and dusting. Sunday she helped generally with the housework, and in the afternoon went out for a walk. Monday morning, as I was preparing to start home, I asked her when she wished me to stop the treatment. She said, "I am as well as I can be and have been for two or three days."

Christian Science healed me when everything else had failed. I had female trouble in its worst form, rheumatism, heart trouble, tonsilitis, in short, I think I was diseased all over; but thanks to Christian Science I am well.
