Almost four years ago, faithful and learned physicians of Chicago and New York City said that I could not last long, as there was not a healthy organ in my body; that an operation to stop the constant hemorrhage might postpone the event, but they refused to undertake this task unless I would go to a hospital to be "built up," which I did. The operation was performed, and according to the surgeons it was "as interesting a case as had ever been there." In about a month after I was able to attend to ordinary duties, the same trouble returned, which was most discouraging. I was also suffering from catarrh of the stomach, which was said to be incurable, chronic constipation, great loss of flesh, and extreme pallor. Add to the physical suffering, the loss of mother, husband, baby, and sister, and it will be seen what hopelessness was my constant companion. Many and frequent were the prayers offered—in the only way I then knew how to pray—that I might die too. Just about this time Christian Science was suggested to me, and accepted. In three weeks' treatment all physical trouble was destroyed. I then began to study Christian Science, and in due season there was laid a firm foundation upon which to build health, holiness, and happiness. It was while I was yet young in this study that my sorrow left me as easily as the laying aside of a superfluous wrap, and left instead the peace which passeth all human understanding.

Should it be considered strange that such freedom causes us to love and revere the author of Science and Health, who has shown so clearly by precept and example how to realize the kingdom of heaven within us? Would it not be unnatural if we failed to experience this gratitude?
