It is with a heart full of gratitude that I give this testimony to the world for benefits received from Christian Science. For more than nine years I was a sufferer, and having derived only temporary relief from materia medica, and with little hope of ever feeling well again, I finally decided to try Christian Science. Little did I realize what blessings awaited me, for after a few weeks treatment I was healed of chronic troubles peculiar to my sex. I had also suffered at times from extreme nervousness and heart trouble. I had to wear glasses whenever I read at night or did fine sewing, but when one form of disease was cured all others seemed to flee.

I became interested in Christian Science through hearing a lecture delivered in our city by Judge Hanna, and while idle curiosity led me to go, I shall ever be thankful that I did hear it. I was a member of an orthodox church which I loved, yet when I began to study Christian Science as given in our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I knew that I had found the truth and I wanted to know more of God, who is Life, Truth and Love. While I am so thankful to have a healthy body, this is the least of the blessings derived from Christian Science treatment. I was taught to know that God is ever-present:—to realize that Christ is here, healing the sick and bringing comfort to the sorrowing, and for this blessed assurance I am the most grateful. This truth has brought me peace where discord seemed to exist, joy instead of worry and discontent, and love instead of resentment. While I still find many battles to fight, I have the assurance that the truth will destroy all evil, and that if I live right, each day there will be added strength.

Words are inadequate to express my gratitude to our beloved Leader, who has toiled so faithfully to give us this blessed message.—Alice A. Votaw, Houston, Tex.
