Pronounced Incurable, but Healed in Christian Science

On the Fourth of July, eight years ago, I was lying in the hospital in Baltimore, Md., in charge of the doctors, and suffering from a cancerous growth on my breast and under my arm. On this Fourth of July, 1900, I tell it with joy, I am free of all doctors, free of all drugs, free of all medical care.

About four years ago, when on my return from San Francisco to Salem, I asked a lady in the car to raise the window for me, which she kindly did; she then asked me what was the matter with my arm. I told her. She asked me if I had ever tried Christian Science. I told her I had never heard of it before, but the name of Christian Science sounded very beautiful to me, and I should like to know something about it. She then told me of her mother who had been an invalid and was confined to her bed for eight years. She was incurable by several doctors and given up to die. As a last resort a Christian Scientist was sent for, and with one week's treatment, her mother was restored to perfect health. It had been five years since her mother was healed, and they had not employed a doctor since.

The very moment that lady named Christian Science, I knew it was what I was looking for; I could not grasp it quickly enough. While she was repeating the story of her mother, the thought came to me very forcibly, "There is help coming to me, for God is no respecter of persons. If He heard her mother's cries He will hear mine also." The thought of help coming to me never left me, so great was my faith in the ever-loving Father. A short time afterward I read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and was perfectly healed without a single treatment.
