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.

Now the Bible seems like a new book. The Bible, Science and Health and the Journal are my daily companions, and such a change as Science has made in my life only those who know me best can tell. I have had the privilege also of going through class. May the time soon come when all shall know that God is no respecter of persons, and know that He is ever present to manifest Love and support His children day by day, with the living bread.
