In February, 1905, my wife, in avoiding a street car, got in the way of a team of dray horses, one of which stepped on her right foot. This caused her to fall; and the wheels of the dray passed over both limbs, injuring her very severely. She was taken home, and a doctor summoned. He bandaged the limbs, and said it would be atleast three weeks before she would be able to place her feet to the floor, and that it might be months before she could walk properly. Shortly after the doctor had left, she began to suffer the most intense pain. I immediately telephoned to a Christian Science practitioner, giving the particulars of the affair, and in twenty minutes after I telephoned my wife was perfectly free from pain and did not suffer a moment thereafter.

The following morning, when the doctor called, he was very much surprised to learn that she had not suffered during the night, and judging from his actions, we could plainly see he was afraid her limbs were paralyzed. The appearances were very alarming, but all these conditions were promptly met by Christian Science, and in three or four days they had nearly all disappeared. In conclusion let me say, that in exactly twelve days she was down town shopping, and has been able to walk ever since without the slightest difficulty.

We thank God for me truth, as revealed in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy.
