A Proof of God's Power

It is with great joy and gratitude that I give my testimony of the great good that has come to me through Christian Science.

About two months ago I was taken with smallpox. Two physicians sent by the city diagnosed the case "confluent smallpox," and said positively no meat or fat of any kind should be eaten, and that I would have to be greased, etc., to get well.

I asked for treatment from a loyal Scientist. There was never a dose of medicine brought to the house as the guard can truthfully say. I ate fat meat, turnip greens, and anything else I could get. I was never greased at any time or in any way. One of my little daughters had the same type of smallpox as myself; my wife and other daughter had varioloid, but Christian Science treatment from the same dear practitioner brought us safely through.

I was visited daily by the Scientist until quarantined, but I was then able to sit up. Through the Scientist's clear realization of God's allness she was untouched.

I am surely grateful for Truth, and deem this last demonstration wonderful indeed.
