A Case of Healing of Paralysis

Fifteen years ago, I lost my voice. I did not emit a tone for six months. An eminent Chicago specialist examined my throat and said that one of my vocal chords was paralyzed. My family physician, after he had treated me for some time, took me to the specialist, at whose hands I suffered great torture through the use of arsenic and local applications of electricity. I was finally dismissed by him without any benefit having been received, and told that he could do nothing further to help me.

After this I did some traveling, but without benefit. Then, in sheer desperation, I went to a Christian Scientist, who not long before this time had come to Chicago from Boston. My healer gave me a treatment each day for thirteen consecutive days, when my voice was fully restored.

The foregoing is a very simple and concise narrative of the general facts. To be more specific, let me say that, fifteen years ago, I was a practising lawyer, with a wife and young children. We were occupying our first home, a new house, with a new mortgage on it. I was meeting with satisfactory success, was fondly planning to rear and educate the dear children, pay the mortgage, and make a reputation as a lawyer and a citizen of which my family at least would approve.
