The Value of Science and Health

Looking backward over fourteen years many rich blessings come before me as evidence of the knowledge gained through the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Often the privilege has been given to present these beautiful truths to those suffering from sin in its many forms and always a benefit if not a perfect healing was realized.

The great value of this book was once shown me when a gentleman who had consumption in its last stage invited me to his bedside where I was permitted to remain a short time. He was so much benefited and interested that he purchased Science and Health, and kept it by him day and night. It proved a great benefit, mentally and physically. All felt his stay here had been prolonged. The suffering lessened, and the family blessed.

A sea captain with his wife came to live in our street. One day he was kicked by a horse on the leg and was unable to do anything for six weeks. After getting out for a few weeks a relapse placed him in bed six weeks more. At this time the trouble was baffling the skill of the physician and a consultation was resorted to. The leg as far as the knee was so black and swollen that amputation was thought necessary.
