As a tribute of gratitude for the many blessings which have come to me through Christian Science in overcoming sorrow as well as sickness, I offer the following. Two children were confided to my care, who had lost their mother and whose father was not interested in Christian Science, but believed in all the laws of materia medica. One morning, he said to me, "I believe the boys have whooping cough," to which I only replied, "Do you think so?" The next morning a neighbor hearing the children coughing, came over and kindly, as she thought, gave me, in detail, what I should prepare myself to go through with.

I closed the door behind her and turned to my Science and Health. Opening it at page 380, my eyes fell upon, "Every law of matter or the body, supposed to govern man, is rendered null and void by the law of God." Then again, on page 400, "This task becomes easy, if you understand that every disease is an error, and has no character or type, except what mortal mind assigns to it." And again, on page 377, "Without the human belief any circumstance is of itself powerless to produce suffering."
