Healed by Reading Science and Health

When Christian Science was first brought to my notice I was suffering from troubles caused by childbirth, and the doctor told me I must go to the hospital or I would never see another well day. The thought of going to a hospital was terrible to me, and I thought I would certainly go crazy if I had to go.

About two weeks later a friend asked me why I did not try Christian Science. I had never heard of it before, but said I was willing to try anything that would save me from an operation. She was not a Scientist, but said the lady that lived in the house with her was, and had been healed by Christian Science of nervous prostration, and I could see her and talk with her, and she would let me have some papers to read.

I was somewhat acquainted with Mrs. S. I saw her and she told me I could be healed. She said she had Science and Health, and that I could take it to read during the evening, and she would have it during the day. As I read page after page, I felt as though it was all true, and that if I could only read the book, I would be healed without treatment, and I was. I had only read fifty pages when I realized I did not need to wear glasses. I had been a slave to them for fourteen years, and had suffered much with my eyes. I have not felt the need of the glasses since I put them away.
