In 1892 my son, then a boy of two years, was taken with a fever which developed into spinal meningitis. My wife wished him to be treated by Christian Science, but, not satisfied, I gave the case to one of Denver's leading physicians. He treated the child for several weeks, possibly three months, and, although the patient mended to the extent that he could be carried about the house, still he was left with a severe cough, which the doctor said he could not reach, having tried his most trusted remedies. Worse than the cough was the lame condition in which he was left. His spinal column was so curved that in standing erect he could not touch the toes of his right foot to the floor. His right shoulder was three inches higher than the left, and all the joints of his body, particularly those of his fingers, were swollen and misshapen. After the physician had said that he could do no more for the boy, I consented to have him treated by Science. Mark the change. I gave the case for treatment on Monday at about noon. That evening at supper, the child manifested the first desire to eat which he had shown during his three months illness. Inside of two weeks the cough had entirely disappeared, and within three weeks he was healed and as straight as any boy I do not remember of his having been sick one entire day since. R. V.
