For more than twenty years I was an invalid

For more than twenty years I was an invalid. I suffered with a bronchial cough, constipation, and ulceration of the lower part of my bowels, which gradually grew worse until I despaired of ever getting well. My husband, a physician, did everything he could for me; he consulted with the best physicians, but they had all given me up and said I could not get well. The cough was so very bad during the last few years of my sickness that I would have to keep medicine under my pillow and take a little many times during the night in order to get any sleep.

Three years ago I was induced by my daughter to quit taking medicine and try Christian Science. I did so and soon after commenced to improve. I continued to take treatment, and I read the Bible and Science and Health for three years, when I was entirely cured of the cough and bowel trouble. Not only did my physical suffering disappear, but mental care and worry also. I could write pages of my suffering and pain, and the great amount of medicine I have taken, but suffice it to say, that all there is left is a dark shadow from which I am turning away as fast as I can.

Words cannot express how thankful I am for Christian Science. During the years of my sickness I thought I was a Christian, but I entirely on material means for life, health, strength; and all these failed me. Now I am well,—old things have passed away and all things have become new. I depend on God for everything; He is my Life, the source of my health and strength, my All. I feel the day will come when all the world will know the truth as pointed out in Science and Health by our dear Leader.—Mrs. Maggie A. Richards, Omaha, Neb.
