Found Light, LIfe, Love, and Liberty

About three years ago I learned of Christian Science and a few days after was healed in one treatment of various troubles of some years' standing. I had for years been under the care of one doctor or another, only to gain temporary relief. My last physician informed my husband that he did not think I would ever be well or strong, for I had so many ailments, and was likely to pass into consumption.

When the light of this blessed Truth that makes free, was brought to me, I was just convalescing from a severe attack of pneumonia and could not seem to again any strength at all, being scarce able to walk. Then neuralgia in my hips came on and caused much pain and sleeplessness. It was then that I asked the friend with whom I was staying to send for my doctor. She had previously told me of Christian Science, and how much she and her family had been benefited by it, and now asked me if I would not like to try a Scientist instead, who she assured me would help me very quickly. I consented, saying I must have help of some kind, for I could bear the suffering no longer.

The Scientist came, and, in a kind and simple way, told me about God and His love for me, — His child,— gave me a treatment, and left, saying nothing about coming again. My friend called to ask him if he would come again. He replied that he did not think it necessary, for I would be all right.
