With a heart full of gratitude to God, and to our loved...

With a heart full of gratitude to God, and to our loved and revered Leader, I give the following testimony. Last winter I suffered from a form of blood-poisoning caused by albuminuria. Some years ago I had the same trouble, and was under the care of materia medica, my husband being an allopathic physician. He was a graduate of, and later a teacher in, the University of Michigan. Although I had the best of care and attention, I was sick for months, and at times suffered intensely. My husband held a consultation of physicians, which resulted in a verdict of one chance out of a hundred for my recovery.

When this disease again came upon me with alarmingly aggravated conditions, I was almost overcome by fear, but with the aid of my son, a boy of fifteen years (we two being the only members of our household), I tried to work out the problem by faithfully reading the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. The subtlety of the disease seemed to be, that the intense suffering came in the night. We lived some little distance from any practitioner, making it hard for my son to go for help. I tried to be considerate of the child, who seemed to need sleep, but many times the only way to lessen the suffering was to go through the Lesson together, or have him read to me. Perhaps he would have to get up two or three times during the night to help me hold to the truth. When the morning light came, the pain would almost leave me, and each time I would think the demonstration made.
