I did not come into Christian Science for its physical healing, but during the five years since I accepted its teachings I have seen cases of tumor, diphtheria, measles, mumps, the grip, chills and fever, and accidents overcome so quickly that it was no wonder outsiders doubted if the cases could have been as bad as at first represented.

We all can by faithful study of the Bible and the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and by applying the rules there laid down, gain such an understanding of the only true and living God that we really know who our helper is and can fully trust Him. When we come to the stage that we know and when perfect Love has cast out all fear, our demonstration is made, no matter what the manifestation has seemed to be.

Is it any wonder we feel thankful to the one who has opened this way for us? My heart has been thanking Mary Baker G. Eddy for the past five years, but now I openly thank her and all the dear ones who are working for the same cause, and whose words of experience and admonition are so helpful and encouraging.
