Diphtheria Healed

THE following letter was recently written by a healer to his teacher:—

Dear Mrs. D.:— I would like to tell you of a case to which I was called recently. The disease was diphtheria, and every child in the family was ill with it; one had already passed away, and it looked as though the other three would follow through the combined fears of the family and a trio of physicians. The nurse who attended the first child was compelled to resign through having contracted the disease, as they thought, but which afterward proved to be tonsilitis. It became necessary to fill her place, and the nurse who responded to the call happened to be a firm believer in Christian Science, and by profession a trained nurse. The day of her arrival the first child who contracted the disease was being taken from the house to the cemetery. She was cautioned by the physician in charge, and also by the officials of the Trained Nurses' Agency, to use every precaution for herself, such as frequent gargling, wet cloths over the mouth, etc., and to encourage her to do these, they informed her that her predecessor was already down with the disease.
