I should be very happy if the story of my healing by Christian Science treatment were to serve the purpose of helping some one else out of trouble as I was helped in my hour of great need; for my case certainly was man's extremity which is always God's opportunity.

I am a German, a farmer, eighty-seven years old, residing at Williston, and had the misfortune in the early autumn of 1897 to have the large toe on my left foot crushed. Our family physician was called in and attended me in the regular way for several weeks; but the injured member grew much worse. The foot, including the lower leg, becoming affected, a second physician was called in, and the two upon consulting decided to advise with a third as to whether it were best to operate surgically. By this time my entire leg was diseased. It was greatly swollen and badly discolored, the injured part having become very offensive, and my general health very much run down. I had no appetite, could not sleep, and suffered intensely all the time. The doctors were perplexed and divided in their opinion as to whether they should amputate the toe, the foot, or the lower half of my leg. It was finally decided that I was too weak to have a surgical operation, and I was put under a certain treatment for a week to prepare me for the ordeal. At the end of that time the several doctors came to our house ready and intending to operate; but finally decided that I could not live more than a week anyhow, and therefore they would not do so.
