About a year and a half ago, Christian Science found me a physical wreck, helpless with rheumatism from which I had suffered for fifteen years, chronic catarrh of twentyfive years' standing. Bright's disease, and dyspepsia. I had taken medicine most of the time for these troubles, but found only occasional relief. I was a slave to the liquor and tobacco habits, a blasphemer, and without God or hope in the world. Through the study of the Bible and Science and Health, attending the Christian Science services and reading the periodicals, the victory over these diseases is complete and lasting.

I had believed these discords to be inherited, as many of my people had been afflicted with them. I can now say, in the words of Jeremiah, "They shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge." I have found that "peace of God, which passeth all understanding." May my every thought, word, and deed constantly be such that I shall be worthy to bear the name of a Christian Scientist.
