Proof of God's Presence and Power

I have recently been healed in Christian Science and have known of some of the wondrous work done in God's name by Christian Scientists, and here is proof of the omnipotence and ever-presence of divine Love.

About 5.30 on Saturday afternoon, August 18, 1900. I went bathing at Crystal Beach, Lake Erie, and running rapidly from the bath house across the beach to the water. I felt something penetrating and adhering to the sole of my right foot. It was a small block of wood about three inches square and in it, points up, were two small rusty wire nails about one inch apart, the points projecting at least three fourths of an inch through the block. As I was running rapidly, I could not stop until three or four more steps had been taken, when the block of wood was found stuck fast to my foot and flat up against it, the two rusty nails in full length. It was with a great effort I managed to pull it off. I went into the water and had my bath and experienced little pain and no trouble till on my way home. When I took off my shoe, there was a little fever and some pain. I went to bed and slept two hours. About midnight I awoke to a sense of horrible agony. My foot was badly discolored, inflamed, and feverish, and shooting, piercing pains were reaching to my hip. I was bathed in my own tears and out of my senses with the agony by half past one o'clock, when my wife went for a healer. About three quarters of an hour after she left me he was at my side. In about fifteen minutes I was sleeping sweetly, and that was the end of my suffering.
