Healed after Material Means had Failed

In the fall of 1895 I first heard of Christian Science. I was at that time confined to my bed with no expectation of ever recovering, as my physician, who was one of the leading physicians in Philadelphia where I then resided, had told me he could do no more for me. I had undergone a serious operation in the hospital, where I remained four months without receiving any benefit. I was then brought home in a much weaker condition than when I went. I kept my room and most of the time was confined to my bed, eight months longer, until Christian Science was brought to me. The operation at the hospital had greatly aggravated the nervous prostration from which I was suffering in addition to many other troubles. The stomach could not retain food. I was wasted to a skeleton. The eyesight was badly impaired from a painful form of astigmatism. There were times when I could not bear the light, and other times when I could not endure the darkness and had to keep a light burning all night. I was fitted to glasses, but was unable to wear any of them. Words cannot describe the agony of those months, both mental and physical, but Christian Science has changed it all giving me a new heaven and a new earth; the heaven and earth of the Scientific understanding of God as Love, who heals all our diseases.

From a condition of extreme suffering and emaciation, I have come to a realization of perfect health, strength, and happiness, for which I give God the praise and glory through Christian Science, which has thrown such a light upon the Scriptures through the teaching of the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." The Bible, which I formerly read from a sense of duty, I now read with a sense of delight and helpfulness, because in the light of Christian Science I understand its spiritual meaning.
