The Christian Scientist's Side

The Morning Mercury

To the Editor of The Mercury : In an article published in your issue of March 1, it says that Louise M. Seals passed away while under my care. This is true, but I see no reason why a case of mine should be published any more than the cases of the M. D.'s. I have practiced Christian Science twelve years in New Bedford and Fairhaven, and in all these years I have lost only two children. Can any M. D. in this locality, or any other, show such a record ?

The first case I had in New Bedford, twelve years ago, was a case of tumors. Her physicians said she could live but a very short time ; notwithstanding that, she was healed and is today a strong, healthy woman. She left her room on the third day and went down stairs and took her meals with the rest of the family and continued to do so. A few years ago her brother was taken with typhoid fever and a physician was called in, but the patient continued to grow worse, and his people became much alarmed, for they had lost one brother of the same disease while under the medical treatment, so they called me in and on the third week he was up to Acushnet on his mother's farm.
