At seven years of age I had an attack of scarlet fever, which left me a weak and sickly child and made me sensitive to various diseases, including diphtheria and the grip. Eight years later a severe stomach trouble developed. In diagnosing the case, eight local physicians differed slightly from a Milwaukee specialist, who pronounced the trouble ulcers of the stomach, a disease which I believed to be hereditary, and with which my father passed on. In 1892 I had what physicians called spinal meningitis in its worst form. It left me with constant pain in the back of my neck, and for nine years and eleven months I was never free from pain, much of the time suffering intensely. At times my neck, right shoulder, and arm stiffened, opiates alone giving me relief. In 1896 I had a stroke of paralysis. About this time the Koch cure was suggested, and I tried it for six weeks without being benefited. Five years later I had several light strokes of paralysis, which put me in a hopeless condition. I resorted to osteopathy, and had twenty-six months' treatment with only temporary relief. On September 8, 1902, I turned to Christian Science for relief from physical agony. At that time I was under strict diet rules, but after the first treatment I ate anything that I desired, without distress, and soon walked long distances without inconvenience. The third day my practitioner told me that further treatment was unnecessary, but I was unwilling to have the treatments discontinued, as I feared a return of the diseases. At the end of the week I was convinced that my healing was complete, and I have remained in perfect health ever since.

My gratitude to God can be measured only by my faithfulness in serving Him, and I am very, very grateful to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for her pure and loving life that has enabled her to bring this blessed healing truth to the world.—Dora E. Cramer, Wausau, Wis.
