I had been a victim of almost hopeless invalidism when Christian Science was first brought to my notice about fifteen or sixteen years ago and was, at that time, not able to be on my feet for any length of time without suffering intensely, and had given up all ordinary pursuits, lying on my bed all day. I was cured in a very short time. I took treatment consecutively for about two weeks, but really felt well in three or four treatments although I was afraid to stop. After my recovery, my old enemy, to my great consternation, made its appearance again, only to be routed in one treatment, and so on through the winter. It made its appearance several times but with the exception of those times, I felt perfectly well, and as one treatment would dissipate the attack, I began to lose my fear of the disease. I had procured a copy of Science and Health and made up my mind on one of these occasions that I would see what I could do for myself. I applied what knowledge I had gained, and to my great joy found that the disease left me. In ten or fifteen minutes it came back, but the few minutes relief gave me encouragement, and by dint of perseverance I soon conquered. I write this for the encouragement of people who are not healed immediately. Keep on, there is not a doubt of the result. I am now a well woman. I used to have a very morbid disposition. All moodiness has been removed, and for supply, happiness, health, and in fact everything that life seems to demand, I find Christian Science unfailing. I will tell some other time of the great demonstration I had over finances at a very critical time. I feel the greatest gratitude to God, Mrs. Eddy, and to all who have been instrumental in showing me this great light.—M. F. C., Chicago, Ill.
