My son was a sufferer from his seventh to his twelfth...

My son was a sufferer from his seventh to his twelfth year from a disease of the throat. His tonsils were much swollen and covered with a filmy rash. He had a high fever and dysphagia. This condition lasted for eight days. He was backward in his development, and through this constant ailment was of a discontented disposition. A year ago the disease appeared frequently, in spite of the greatest care, hardly four weeks passing until the same trouble made its appearance again. Medical treatment brought no help, and I left nothing untried in those five years. I again took my son to a physician and had him examined. The physician said that his tonsils must be removed, they were too large, and for that reason were often inflamed, that nothing else would cure the disease. In March, 1904, my son was ill again. Meanwhile we had heard of Christian Science, and during this illness the boy was reading in Der Herold der Christian Science, and would not take the medicine which he had formerly used. He wanted to be healed by the help of God, and he was entirely well after two treatments. Over a year has passed, and the disease has not reappeared, and we know it will not return. The discontented boy has been transformed to a cheerful, loving one.

My husband and I are deeply grateful to God for Christian Science. The words, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you," are ever true. We are also grateful to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy. We have found happiness and contentment in our daily life.
