I feel that it is a great privilege to express my gratitude for the help I have received from Christian Science through our Sentinel and Journal. My heart goes out in a great sense of love to God and to our dear Leader. I had always been delicate, as a child, scarcely knowing a day free from some ailment. While I was yet a baby, my father died from inherited consumption, his father and his brother having passed away with the same disease. It was supposed that I would follow them; hence, every six months—or oftener—I was regularly taken to a physician to have my lungs examined. In winter I always wore two suits of flannels, the one next my body being lined with cotton batting, as I suffered a great deal from pleurisy, yet all this time our home was in sunny California. Since coming into Christian Science, I have spent several winters in the East, although while there those who knew me prophesied sure death for me. When I returned home in the best of health, they were equally certain that a difference of climate had wrought the favorable change; but I knew it was due to Christian Science, and am learning to prove, "Our heaven is everywhere, if we but love our God."

M mother became a student of Christian Science some thirteen years ago, and later I myself took up the study. I can say that from the time my mother began the study of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, there has been a steady growth into health and happiness for our family, and the thirteen years seem but a day. We have had many struggles with error during this time, but the results attained point to the final victory over all error.
