Healed by Christian Science

Rockford (Ill.) Daily Register-Gazette

A Rockford friend of Mr. Arthur Chapman, formerly of the Register-Gazette, now Sunday editor of the Denver Republican, has received a letter regarding a recent severe illness and its influence on his religious belief, with permission to read it to friends here. The following is the portion of the letter bearing on that subject.

"I suppose you know that I had a serious attack of typhoid fever awhile ago. I worked at the office until I could hardly drag one foot after the other, thinking I merely had a touch of grip and could shake it off by will power, which I then mistook for Christian Science. Consequently, when I finally gave up I was a physical wreck and simply collapsed all at once. I went down to one hundred pounds, a loss of thirty-five pounds from my normal weight.

"You know I had been in sympathy with Christian Science for a long time, but I was not what you would call a Scientist, as I knew little or nothing about it, and was sceptical on many points. When I was asked which I would have, however, I chose Science in preference to the doctor, and I firmly believe that I owe my life to that choice. It took me quite a while in my sickness to undergo a spiritual change, though the physical improvement under treatment was rapid.
