A Letter to a Friend

Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

My Dear Friend: —As you know, I had a claim of Locomotor Ataxia of three years standing, and in seeking health I made a trip to Europe, then spent a winter in North Carolina, then two months in a hospital in St. Paul, and always under medical or electric treatment, with no permanent benefit.

In the spring of 1898 I tried Osteopathy two months with only sngut temporary benefit. In June following, my wife suggested that I try Christian Science as a last resort, and urged me to call on a local demonstrator here. Neither of us knew anything about Christian Science, and having no faith in it, I asked to be shown some one who had been healed of such a disease as mine. I was given the name of a Chicago gentleman, and I started that night for Chicago to see him. During the next day, before I had an opportunity to see the gentleman, I met a friend, who, on making inquiry as to my health, mentioned the fact that a friend of his had been healed in Christian Science of a disease of exactly the same nature as mine.
