Over two years ago I turned to Christian Science because everything else had failed to help me. I was almost an invalid for twenty years; twelve or fifteen years a sufferer from asthma with all its horrors. During all this period of suffering I was attended by many eminent physicians, several specialists, and had an operation for polypus of the nose. I spent almost every summer away from home, in the care of the best doctors, seeking benefit in change of climate, spending large sums of money with no lasting benefit, and only looking for relief in death. When Christian Science came to me I saw that God is Life, and this brought many and great changes. The wonder now is, how I could live without knowing this truth that makes free. When I first turned to Christian Science I little knew of the wonderful blessings in store for me. After those years of suffering, when almost bereft of hope, when materia medica and hygiene had failed me, and when my son, a surgeon in the U. S. Marine Hospital Service, said that this disease could not be cured by materia medica, I found in Christian Science a God who is "a very present help in trouble." Now I am healed and in better health than for forty years. Not only have I found relief from physical suffering, but a better understanding of God and man and all that is good. I have had no return of asthma, although a year has passed since this truth made me free.

Words fail to express my gratitude to God for this revealed truth; to Mrs. Eddy for her pure life, sublime faith, and selfless love, which enables her to reflect this truth and bring countless blessings to mankind.
