I wish to tell of an experience which may help some one who is trying to find his way from darkness to the perfect light of Truth. Our little son, ten years old, fell and cut his wrist very badly. He started for home, nearly a mile distant, at the same time declaring the truth and knowing that God could do all things. A gentleman caught him and wrapped a handkerchief around his wrist. He asked the boy where he lived, and when he told him, he said, "You will never get home, you must go to a doctor as quick as you can." The child said we were Christian Scientists. The gentleman responded, "Well, Christian Science can never heal this," and was going to take him to a surgeon, but the child begged the gentleman to bring him home, which he did. He sent another little boy to me, as fast as he could run, to tell me what had happened. I went out to meet them, declaring the truth and knowing that God, divine Mind, is a perfect healer and that blood has nothing to do with life. When I met them the gentleman told me that I must have a doctor immediately. I thanked him and told him I would attend to the child. When I was alone with the child I told him that God was his Life and his strength, and he said he knew it. I then loosened the bandage, put a clean cloth on, and kept declaring the truth. After supper he was able to move his fingers and we read the Lesson together. He found the references in the Bible and read them. The next morning he dressed himself and went to school, took an examination and wrote with that hand. This happened Monday evening, and Wednesday the wrist was entirely healed, there being nothing but a slight mark left.

We have had many demonstrations, for which we are very thankful to God, and to our dear, loving Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for giving us the perfect understanding of God.
