I wish to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done, and is doing, for me. About two and a half years ago Christian Science found me in a very bad state, both physically and mentally. I was suffering from insomnia in its worst form, having gone over two weeks without any sleep. I had one of the best physicians in this city, who tried all kinds of opiates, chloroform included, to put me to sleep, but nothing gave me even temporary relief. I knew I could last but a few days, and had given up all hope, when a friend suggested that I try Christian Science. I accepted it most willingly, and went to a gentleman who is a practitioner. He asked me if I was ready to give up doctors and medicine. I told him that I was, as they could do nothing for me. He gave me a treatment, and to my surprise I went home and slept. I have not suffered from insomnia since that time. This was to me a beautiful demonstration, and showed me that Christian Science is the truth Christ Jesus taught. Along with insomnia, I had a stomach trouble of eighteen years' standing, and this also was healed in three weeks. I have never taken a drop of medicine since, and am most grateful to God for these many blessings. I am also grateful to the practitioner, and to Mrs. Eddy who, through her pure life, as God's messenger, has brought to suffering humanity this glorious truth which does indeed make us free from sickness and sin.—J. W. McGuire, St. Louis, Mo.
