I had been troubled annually with an ulcerous growth all along the lower jaw, which lasted from two to four weeks and caused great pain and inconvenience by discharges, which kept me in the house for a few days together. Four years ago when this made its reappearance I went to a practitioner and had one week's treatment. The trouble disappeared, and has not returned since. I now look back with gratitude to the patience with which I was shown the unreality of sickness and the blessing of health and harmony which divine Love gives if we are willing to accept it.

After this the appetite for intoxicating liquors, and all pleasure in the company with which it surrounds one, left me, and my life opened up with better surroundings and conditions. Later, I suffered from quick consumption, which had been brought on by my habits of dissipation. This was overcome without my absence from business for a single hour. With deliverance from this disease came also the dislike for tobacco, to which I had been greatly addicted for six years. Since then, through the earnest study of the Bible and our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I have been able, with a little understanding, to meet many cases of sickness which have come to my home. The sense of peace and happiness which we experience in the degree that we reflect divine Love to those around us, and the knowledge that we have dominion over all obstacles, is cause for constant gratitude to God, and to our beloved Leader, for her life of self-sacrifice in giving to the world this practical truth, named Christian Science.
