About eight years ago my eyes failed to do their work, but through my faith in the physician and in the oculist to whom he sent me, my sight was restored. Nearly a year ago, after coming into Christian Science, the old ailment came back with double force, and I at once told my troubles to my teacher and practitioner. For a time my sight seemingly grew worse, so that by the latter part of January, 1903, I could not see the distance of half a block to tell whether a man or woman was coming toward me, and in February, 1903, when receiving class instruction I could not see the length of the room to tell from the features whether or not it was my teacher in the chair. When I state that this condition originated from hereditary blindness, something may be known of what my fears were.

By the close of the class term I could see my teacher clearly, and through the healing, and the patient instruction of my teacher, I have come to see that in infinite strength there is no weakness; in infinite light there is no darkness; in perfect Love there is no fear; and that to realize these three statements is to know the truth of the statement concerning spiritual sight given in Science and Health (p. 505).

My physical sight is restored so that I now see better than ever before, and my gratitude to God, to Jesus our Wayshower, to our beloved Leader for this wonderful truth, and to my teacher and practitioner, cannot be expressed in words, but I daily pray that my thoughts, words, and deeds may prove my gratitude, faith, obedience, and love. I hope that I may be found worthy to do for others what has been done for me. I listen constantly for the "still, small voice" of divine Love to guide me as it has our Leader, who has so nobly and lovingly discovered and proved the way for us through the one Christ.
