Better Without Medicine

In the year 1891 I became afflicted with a malady that caused me to be a great sufferer for seven and one half years. I had six different physicians (good men) and received no benefit whatever. Each giving me up in their turn by saying, Nothing will cure you but a surgical operation. Not willing to trust to so dangerous a method, I concluded to give up doctoring altogether, and for two years I did practically nothing. I found myself a great deal better off, but still in a very bad condition.

When in November, 1897, a gentleman called at my home that had heard of a new healing, he said, Why don't you try it? he not knowing what kind of healing it was himself. He said I know a young man that has been cured of hydrophobia by this healing. I thought if such were the case I certainly could be cured. I went at once to learn what it was, and was told that is was the Christ-cure as practiced by Jesus. I was perfectly willing to try it. Oh; such beautiful words of encouragement! My healer loaned me a copy of SCIENCE AND HEALTH, and I read almost all the time until I could buy one, and at the end of two months with only two treatments a week, I was well and able to go back to work.
