Although I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing, I have benefited so much in health, and in other ways, since entering on this wonderful new life, that I would be ungrateful indeed if I did not express my thankfulness for it. By means which would be deemed miraculous without some understanding of Christian Science, I have been enabled to cast off many physical bonds and infirmities, which, under the old thoughts, were year by year getting me more firmly in the toils; and though now a good few years over the half century, I find myself not only enjoying a full renewal of health, but in a measure quite rejuvenated, having gained "the freer step" and "the fuller breath" which are characteristic of the true sense of Life.

At the time I first heard of Christian Science I did not count myself an invalid, except on occasions; but I know now that I was, to sense, the veriest slave to many infirmities, and that every year was adding to my thraldom. Bronchitis, lumbago, rheumatism, each claimed me as its victim, and so frequently that I was seldom without one or another of them; while other infirmities, such as failing eye-sight and getting out of breath on the least exertion, were daily becoming more and more troublesome. In this miserable state I lived, and was content in a way, flattering myself with the delusion that all these ailments were dispensations of Providence, and that, as such, it became me to bear them with resignation, and even with cheerfulness.
