By occupation I am a blacksmith, and two and a half years...

By occupation I am a blacksmith, and two and a half years ago I was about driven from the shop by hammer rheumatism in my elbow. After various pain-killers, cure-all liniments, a very highly charged electric belt, etc., for about three months, to no purpose, for a change I called on Christian Science for help, but without any hope of being benefited.

When I began treatment my arm was quite crooked and was wasting away very perceptibly. In about two weeks I could wield a nine-pound hammer with that arm, which before treatment could scarcely use a one-pound hammer. With that physical change, my thoughts began to change. I felt that anything so wonderful was certainly worth looking into, so I began studying Science and Health and afterward bought a Bible (my first one), and in a short time I found I had no tired feeling and could get along with about two hours less sleep. Profane language and tobacco chewing began to get distasteful. I had been addicted to both for about forty-three years. Burns, boils, toothache, etc., yielded to Truth through my small understanding, and with more help from our Leader's writings and the Sentinel and the Journal, "I propose to fight it out on this line."—A.
