For several years past I have been afflicted with an ailment which increased in its intensity each year. I tried several doctors, and early in the summer of 1905 I went to a specialist, who told me that there was positively no cure for me. Discouraged and disheartened. I sought help in Christian Science. for I had a friend who had recently been healed of a long-standing illness, and I felt if there was help for her there must be for me. I did not delay or wait for the usual attack. but went at once to a practitioner, and for the first time in ten years I was free from the disease. It was so good to go wherever I wished. even into a barn filled with new-mown hay,—a place which before I had always had to shun.

I am a teacher in a commercial school in Boston, and Science has been such a help to me the past year, for I have worked and taught, knowing that God is the one intelligence and source of strength, and thus my work has been and is one of pleasure in every way. God is indeed very good to me, and I am trying to thank Him, not only in words but in deeds, for the many blessings with which He is constantly surrounding me: and to Mrs. Eddy. who has given to the world that dear, comforting book, Science and Health, I give my heartfelt gratitude.
