Gratitude and justice induce me to state the following facts regarding the sickness and cure of a member of my family by Christian Science treatment.

About last Christmas time my daughter's health was impaired. Her digestive organs were entirely out of order, causing her distress. The physician made very light of it at first. but soon found the disorder to be of a more serious character. and prescribed medicine quite freely without affecting a change. He then expressed a wish to call a consulting as in his opinion there was an obstruction in the gall duct and an operation was unavoidable. The consultation supported the opinion of the attending physician and they asked our consent to an operation, which was reluctantly given. The patient was transferred to the hospital and operated on as we supposed, but we were told later that it was impossible to perform the operation, as the physicians found a cancerous growth covering the parts, and it was predicted by them that she could only live a few days, and would pass away in great pain. I was not willing to abide by these prophecies, and following the advice of a member of the Christian Science Church I called a practitioner and secured Christian Science treatment. Almost immediately I noticed a favorable change in the condition of the patient. There was no pain except such as customarily follows an operation. Soon she could eat heartily and digest her food, and she left the hospital to stay with her sister, where she daily gained strength. She is now fully recovered and is home again. It must be mentioned that no kind of medicine has been administered since the attempted operation.
