A Wonderful Demonstration

I have expressed my gratitude many times at our Wednesday meetings, and there is scarcely a day passes that I do not tell some stranger of the great benefits I have received from Christian Science, having been healed through the reading of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

It was fourteen years ago last February that the good news came to us of several persons who had been healed by Christian Science. For about seven years I had been deformed from a dislocated hip and curvature of the spine. The physicians said I could never be any better, and that they thought a great deal had been done for me in preventing an abscess from forming, telling me what a terrible thing it was. Walking much would cause a soreness in the joint, and some days I could not walk at all. In addition to this, I had what the doctor called ulceration of the eyelids, with which I had been troubled since having the measles when three years of age, and almost every spring for two or three weeks I could not open my eyes, the suffering being so severe. After hearing of the work Christian Science was doing I wasted no time in going to see the Scientist who had started the work in our city, Grand Rapids.

My interview with him was not satisfactory, as he would not promise a cure, but tried to explain to me; but I could not, or would not, understand. I confounded Christian Science with faith cure, and thought that not to be willing to promise showed a weak faith, and I would not take treatment.
