A Convincing Experience


To the Editor of the Globe: —At different times of late I have seen little paragraphs in reference to Christian Science, which the writers have undertaken publicly to denounce. Allow me to relate my experience. Christian Science was introduced to me three years ago last February by a man from your city, a great friend of mine, who had been healed by its power. His remarks were sweet and full of love, though strange and new to me. They were seed sown in good soil, for as I listened with an earnest heart, longing to know what this message was, the desire was planted deep down in my consciousness, and the seed began to grow.

"Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," written by Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, was sent for, as something new was needed, for I myself, as well as my household, had taken medicine enough. We were all interested, but could not understand the book. One night three weeks later I was feeling as though I had the grip. Every bone in my body seemed as thought it would break. I had also been troubled with liver complaint, biliousness, and catarrh of the head for years. On opening the door I said to my wife, "I will prove Christian Science to-night to be a lie or the truth." When the rest of the family had retired I took Science and Health, and started to read, with the object of proving the end to which I had made my vow. In four hours I was healed of all these complaints. I have never suffered from any of them since. I have never since used any medicine in my home. Christian Science has been our guide.
