With a heart overflowing with thankfulness I wish to give my testimony to what Christian Science has done for me. In March, 1904, I was induced to take this treatment, after four years of semi-invalidism and finally sixteen weeks of complete invalidism under the doctor's care. During that time we consulted eight specialists and five family physicians, vainly seeking relief. My trouble was organic—a tumor—and my nerves had become so completely unstrung that I was unable to focus my eyes, and thus was deprived of their use for four years, either for reading or sewing. In one treatment I found that I was able to read again, and in five weeks the glasses which had been prescribed and used were removed. I have used my eyes constantly ever since, for all sorts of fine work. All my other ills also vanished, in spite of the fact that I was repeatedly told that I would be an invalid for years and perhaps for life unless I submitted to a very serious operation. Having already had two minor operations performed without the slightest benefit, we were hesitating, and in despair as to what was best to do when the glad tidings of Christian Science reached us. I held off from it for some time, never having known any one who was healed, but finally I went to New York, and after a very few treatments, experienced what I have just related.

No words can express my gratitude, my joy, and deep appreciation of this glorious truth. It is indeed the truth that makes men free. Let me add my tribute of thankfulness to Mrs. Eddy.
