I was in poor health for ten years and under a doctor's care constantly. My physician said I had a complication of disease,—uterine, kidney, and stomach trouble, etc. Finally I had a severe attack of fever and a doctor called every day, but I was no better. A friend then spoke to me of Christian Science. She had been healed by it, but I was not yet ready for it. I consulted another doctor and he advised me to go to a hospital and submit to an operation after he had built me up. I took the medicine for six weeks, then went to a hospital and had the operation performed. After five weeks I returned home, but was not able to do anything. The doctor told me to remain quiet for three months. I obeyed his orders, but as soon as I began to work all my ailments came back and I was soon as ill as ever. The doctor then said a slight operation would be necessary every three months. To this I would not submit and made up my mind to die.

At this time some Christian Science literature was sent to me. I read it but did not understand it. When the Scientist called upon me she reassured me, telling me that if I would get the book Science and Health and read it carefully, I would soon understand it and get well. I procured a copy, began reading, and became so interested that I could scarcely stop. I would read to my husband and say, "I know it is true," and I began to feel free and happy for the first time in years. I went to church, and read the text-book faithfully. My troubles all disappeared gradually and I have been well and happy for five years, able to do the work for a family of twenty with the assistance of one girl.
