I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to God, and to Mrs. Eddy, for the many blessings received through Christian Science. In November, 1904, our little boy was kicked on the head by a horse, the shoe striking him between the eye and temple. making an ugly gash and slivering the bone. He was in the barn lot, about a hundred yards from the house, but he got up and came to the house, the blood streaming all over him. We sent for a surgeon to dress the head, and it took two of them over an hour and a half to do it. A dozen pieces of bone were removed, but after the first scare, at the sight of the instruments, he never complained. This happened about half past eight in the morning and he never lost a meal or his sleep. and he was out of school only one week. He was injured on Saturday and on Monday evening his eye was open, clear and bright as ever, without a particle of redness. I cannot tell how thankful I was when I saw this. The beauty of this to me was that, so far as he was concerned, the work was done at the first treatment given during the operation.

I never felt any fear from the first, although I stood by him from the time the doctors began until they had finished. For this demonstration alone I owe lifetime's service to the Cause of Christian Science.
