I feel that it is a privilege as well as a duty to tell what help has come to me through the truth as presented in Christian Science. Three years ago last March I was stricken with what the physician diagnosed as appendicitis. He called three and four times a day, and as I did not improve in the least, he ordered my removal to the hospital that I might be placed under the knife. My wife's mother, a believer in Christian Science, advised that I should not be taken away, and urged my wife to try Christian Science. I knew nothing of this truth except a few things my wife had told me, but I was willing to try anything which would relieve me of the terrible agony. With one treatment I was so far relieved of pain that I fell into a deep sleep. The physician had used every means known to materia medica to cause a movement of the bowels, but without avail. In one half hour after the first treatment, perfect action was brought about. The next day I walked four blocks, and in ten days was at my work, which requires great strength, as I am a shoer of horses.

After this wonderful healing I felt that my wife, who had been a physical wreck for a number of years, must be placed under treatment, and in three weeks she was so far restored as to consider herself a well woman.

I am thankful to God for the help we have received through the enlightened understanding of our Leader, Mrs. Eddy.—W. H. Grant, Wakefield, Mass.
