Healed by Reading Science and Health

Although Christian Science had been known in our home for five years, I did not feel inclined to study into it until I thought i was my duty to do so, on account of the statement frequently made to my daughter by a member of the Baptist Church, that the devil was in Mrs. Eddy's book, and that the devil was doing the healing. I told my daughter that I should study the text-book, and if I found anything wrong in it she would have to give it up.

It was a little over one year ago that I began the diligent study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," but instead of finding something of the devil in it, I found Jesus and religion again,—that which I had neglected for many years. That alone was a great gain for me; but soon I found my old ailments were leaving me. First, asthma of twenty-five years' standing, then a rupture of ten years' standing. What seemed most wonderful of all was, that my left arm, which was dislocated forty-two years ago and never set in place, commenced to pain me in the shoulder-joint one night, and next morning I could move my arm any way I wanted to. Previous to this I could hardly raise my hand higher than my ear.

Afterward my eyesight improved, constipation and indigestion left me entirely. Although I had been a moderate drinker and smoker, I lost all desire for both drinking and smoking; and minor ailments left me.
