For three years I was afflicted with what the doctors had diagnosed as floating kidney, resulting, the attending physician said, in tuberculosis of the bowels. I had seven of the best physicians of the city at different times, and two specialists pronounced my case incurable without an operation, and said that recovery would be doubtful even if the operation were successful. As the condition of my heart would not allow my taking an anesthetic, the operation was out of the question, and the physicians said that I might die at any moment. At length I was taking heart stimulants three times a day, and frequently a physician was hastily summoned during the night for sudden attacks of the heart. I was afraid to sleep, for sleep seemed to be merely a trance-like condition in which I was semi-conscious but could not move. I felt that I should go insane through fear.

I was finally induced to try Christian Science, and was completely healed in two weeks' treatment. I at once began taking care of my own rooms, whereas I had not been able before even to lift a chair. During the treatment, glasses which I had worn for nine years, on account of astigmatism, were laid off, and I have never worn them since. My healing occurred in October, 1901, and these conditions have never returned.
