Grateful for Science and Health

I have been made very happy by the complete healing that has just been brought out in a patient, a sweet German woman. She had endured intense suffering for over thirteen years, had been confined to the house almost constantly for three years, and to her bed for six months. She could eat but little, often going two and three days without touching food. She could only lie in a certain position, and slept but little, taking morphine continually to deaden the sense of pain.

Her physician did all he could for her, but seemingly she grew worse, till the day before I was asked to take the case her suffering seemed beyond human endurance and she felt she had reached the end of everything. With the third treatment the pain was almost, if not entirely destroyed, and she was eating heartily three meals a day. On the sixth day she was up and dressed, remaining up till eight o'clock in the evening. The eighth day she began going down stairs to her meals. In less than two weeks she had prepared a supper and also cooked a dinner. Within four weeks from the first treatment, the entire spring house cleaning had been done, she superintending and helping, and for two days of that time was on her feet constantly. The fifth week she went driving, and paid a visit to a married son, doing some shopping meanwhile.

She is radiantly happy, not only because of the healing, but for the spiritual awakening and the new life she has found, which she feels to be of much greater importance. Her heart is so full and overflowing with gratitude that she begs me to write this letter to tell our Leader how she loves her for giving us "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," that unlocks, with the key of Love, all the promises of Life and ever-present Good, which God has given to us in the Bible, and shows us so clearly how to-day we can claim those promises and make them our own.
