It is with a deep sense of gratitude to God, and to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, that I attempt to tell of some of the benefits I have received from Christian Science, spiritually, physically, and financially, during the last three and a half years. I was a sufferer for ten years from severe rheumatic trouble. I was obliged to wear a steel brace, and hardly knew an hour's relief from pain, notwithstanding the fact that I had the best medical attention and hospital treatment. I am grateful for the kindness shown me, but I had no permanent benefit from medical treatment.

I have since been healed through the study of Science and Health and the treatment given in Christian Science. My limbs have become normal in every way; I am walking erect without the aid of either brace, crutches, or cane, which formerly were necessary; and my health is better than for twenty years prior to taking Christian Science treatment. The tobacco habit of years has also been overcome, all desire for it being eradicated solely through the reading of Science and Health.

Only sufferers who have been led out of darkness into light can appreciate the love we hold for our Leader, who has shown us the way and taught us to know the truth that makes us free.—John S. Knapp, Baltimore, Md.
