Since my testimony appeared in the Sentinel I have received many letters both for and against this glorious Truth that is more to me than my meat and drink. After one feels the touch of life and health flowing through every avenue of one's being through the understanding of Christian Science, it is not an easy matter to get that one to turn away from the best thing ever given to mortals. When I was a Methodist I thought we had the best religion God had provided for man. I never preached a sermon on Christian Perfection but I always quoted from John Wesley, and I never heard any one object to that, but I had not taken up Christian Science over two months until your literature began to come to me with pencil marks when Mrs. Eddy was mentioned as "our Leader." I used to feel proud of John Wesley's teachings and loved to read the biographies of the best people in the Church, but all these years I grew worse with stomach and other troubles until life became a burden.

I carried my graham bread wherever I went in order to live at all. I did not turn to Christian Science until I had exhausted the M. D's. skill on some of my troubles; since I have been treated by one of our Leader's loyal students I do not know I have a stomach by what I eat. Where is there a system of ethics or religion since the days of Jesus Christ that will do that for a man? And beside this, one cannot be healed without being uplifted morally. I have had such an uplifting in spiritual things as I did not think possible on this stage of action.
