Healed by Reading Science and Health

It is nearly four years since Christian Science was brought to my notice by the miraculous (as it seemed to me then) recovery of a friend who had been an invalid for several years. She lent me "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and rather timidly (as she knew I was not at all religious) suggested my reading it.

The book seemed to rend me. However, I could not lay it down. I devoured it, and thought it the most powerful work I had ever read.

I had suffered for nine or ten years from a very troublesome and painful disease in my throat, and had tried every remedy. The late Sir Morell Mackenzie and many other specialists told me that it was incurable, and the only way to keep the disease in check was to have my throat cauterized every three months. This caused me very great pain. I had, however, given up worrying about it, for I thought, "What can't be cured must be endured." To my intense surprise, shortly after beginning to study Science and Health, I felt that my throat was perfectly well, and from that time till now I have not felt it.
