Testimony of a Dentist

I became interested in Christian Science because the Christian Scientists with whom I came in contact in my profession and otherwise seemed to possess something better than any one else I had ever met. I have never seen a Christian Scientist unhappy or disturbed by any pain I was obliged to inflict, and I have seen many who seemed to dispel every evidence of pain under trying circumstances from a mortal mind standpoint.

About the time I began the search for this Truth I closed my safe door one afternoon, with the thumb of my right hand inside. I will not attempt to describe my feelings, but simply say that I went home at once. My thumb gave me all I could attend to and I had no thoughts of business and cared little for anything except to get rid of the pain. I retired with my right hand propped high with pillows, the only way I could get any relief, and very little even then. I went to my office the next morning with my arm in a sling to give my bookkeeper directions regarding putting off my patients. My first patient whom I could not notify arrived about the time I did. I told her not to take off her hat and wraps, and explained my condition. She being a Christian Scientist laughed at me, and told me I could work just the same as ever, and finally induced me to try, which I did, and succeeded.
