It is seven years since I first received physical benefits...
It is seven years since I first received physical benefits from Christian Science. I was then healed of a cancerous tumor on the stomach which had baffled many physicians then in this State. I was thoroughly cured of this trouble in a very short time, through Christian Science, and was able to return to work. Some three years later I was working in a quarry, when a large piece of loose rock rolled from its lodgment above, and struck me a glancing blow on the right side, breaking two of my ribs. The workmen around rushed to pick me up, fearing that I was killed or that I would never recover. I was taken home (about two miles and a half) and immediately called a Christian Scientist to help me. The treatment was so effectual that in a week's time I was able to go to work, feeling none of the bad effects which usually accompany such an accident. Shortly after this I went to work in a mine as foreman. One day I went into the mine and took a man with me. As the rock was very hard it was necessary to use a double-handed ten-pound hammer. I was holding the drill and the man was swinging the hammer, striking the drill I held. As he had never done this striking before, he was very full of fear, and after a few blows on the drill he missed it altogether and struck me on the very place where the rock had broken my ribs. From that time until recently, I have suffered untold agony from the side. I sought help from others, but the relief was only temporary. The pain seemed to grow worse until I was unable to raise my arm as high as the shoulder. One night when the suffering was so intense that I could not rest, the thought came to me like a flash that I must do my own work, that I must not always depend on others. I took up Science and Health and read on page 385, from line 22. I read the paragraph several times, lay down to rest, and in a very short time the swelling caused by the blow burst and all the contents came out. I have thus learned the grand truth of the saying, "Heal thyself." It was a lesson I shall never forget. From my inmost heart I can say I am thankful to God, to our Leader, and to Christian Science.
