Chronic Diseases Healed

I was a great suffer for years with a chronic trouble the doctors called catarrh of the bowels; there were many other troubles beside. There came a time when I was confined to my bed for fourteen months. During that time I had eight of the best doctors that could be found, and although they did all in their power, they could not heal me, and gave me very little hope of ever being anything but invalid, if I could gain strength enough to get up at all. Many of them thought I could never leave my bed. I did get up and kept around for several months, but I was very miserable all the time, and when the relapse came, it left me so crushed in mind and body, there seemed to be nothing left to build on.

About this time Christian Science was mentioned to me. I had no faith in it, but promised I would try it as medicine could do me no good. I went to one of Mrs. Eddy's faithful students and was healed in eleven weeks. That was several years ago, and since then, I have seen my children brought through attacks of diphtheria and other troubles that seemed quite serious. — F. E. W., Dorchester, Mass.
