Help in Time of Need

Allow me to acknowledge what Christian Science has done for me. I am now forty-one years of age, and since childhood I have been afflicted with what the most eminent physicians of this state pronounced hay fever; asthma troubling me for about six months of the year. During the most severe attacks I could not lie down or sit up, only lean forward, resting my head on a chair back, and gasping for breath. These attacks would last from one to six weeks.

I have tried many physicians, among them those who are said to to be the best in the State of Wisconsin. After paying them everything I had earned and all that my wife possessed, they pronounced my case incurable.

About the first of last November I was taken with the most severe attack I ever had. I had heard of Christian Science in the spring of 1900, and being completely discouraged, and thinking I could not live until morning. I finally consented to have my wife go for a healer who is located at New London. I had treatment three days and received no benefit. The evening of the third day the healer said she could do no more for me because I rebelled against the Truth. I did fight against it until I thought I would choke to death. Then I promised the Lord that if He would show me the Truth. I would serve Him the rest of my life. This was a few moments past II p.m. I dropped to sleep and before twelve I awoke. I was breathing naturally. I called for the healer again and received four days further treatment; at the end of that time I was entirely healed and went to my work, and I have been in perfect health ever since.
