It may interest some to hear of the help I have received in Christian Science. For four years I had water on the knee, the result of rheumatism, and during that time I never walked a step without an elastic knee-cap. Every five or six months I had an acute attack of rheumatism in my knee, which caused such suffering that I would be unable to sleep, or even turn over in bed. This generally confined me to my bed for two weeks, two weeks more would elapse before I could go down stairs, and altogether six weeks would pass before I felt able to go out, even with the aid of a cane. Five years ago one of these acute attacks had kept me awake all night and in the morning a friend who had just taken up Christian Science came to see me. In a half laughing way, I asked her to treat me, and then forgot all about it. The next morning I was amazed to find that the swelling and pain had both nearly disappeared. The next day I went out, and since then I have never worn my elastic knee-cap, and have had but one slight return.

In spite, however, of that experience I did not then take up the religion, although I believed in the healing part of it. Finally, sorrow and suffering literally drove me into it, and I decided then, that what I could not understand and accept, I would put aside until Truth revealed it to me, and gradually all those things have been made clear. If Christian Science could do nothing but eliminate fear and worry, one would feel repaid for studying it.
