I am only a little girl eleven years old

I am only a little girl eleven years old. I live in Monroe. Neb. About six years ago I was sick with the heart disease. I was in bed for six months. Four different doctors came to see me and they said that they could not do anything for me. They said that if I ever got well I could not run and play as other children did.

One day my aunt came to see me. She asked mother if she would let me be cured by Christian Science. Of course mother said yes. We did not believe in it at all. In about a week after that I was able to walk around, and I can run and play like other children. I am so thankful to Mrs. Eddy for teaching us the way.
