With a heart full of gratitude I am pleased to testify to what Christian Science has done for me both mentally and physically. About a year ago Christian Science found me in what to the human sense was a most deplorable condition. I had been absent from my business for fifteen months, during which time I had suffered untold mental agonies, and many of the physical ills which go with a complete nervous breakdown. After having had treatment from a number of regular physicians, several of whom were well-known, specialists, and living up faithfully to their several prescriptions, including extensive traveling, I was forced to visit two sanitariums, in one of which I was located when Christian Science was suggested to me as a possible way out of my trouble. I had been for months in the depths of despair, so much so that I could see no possible way of escape, and actually longed for death day and night. It was not with any great amount of faith that I consented to see a Christian Science practitioner. I was told that it would be better for me to take treatment outside of the sanitarium in which I was then located, and I therefore consented, after some little persuasion, to rejoin my wife, from whom I had been separated for months.

My healing was not instantaneous, but it was sure. Little by little I could see myself gaining ground, and one by one my physical ailments disappeared, so that after nine months' treatment I was led back to my business post. Against the advice of many of my friends I kept up with my duties from the first hour, with increasing courage, so that I find myself to-day, six months after my return, fully as active as ever and if anything better able than ever to apply myself with ease and enjoyment to continuous hours of hard mental work. This has all come about through Christian Science and nothing else. Truth showed me the way back to my place in the world, as nothing else ever could, and having put me there it keeps me there. Truth also helps me to work out every problem that comes up in the course of my business life, and in my home life as well. I wonder now how I ever got along before without Christian Science. I am sure that if I had had even a little of this beautiful truth in my consciousness, in the past, I would not have had to go through the ordeal I did. My daily prayer is that I may gain a little every day in the understanding of this wonderful healing truth which brings one closer to God. The knowledge that each step nearer to Him is a step towards the realization of eternal Life brings increasing joy and satisfaction. I cannot close without giving my hearty thanks to Mrs. Eddy for bringing this truth to light.—R. P. Seymour, Orange. N. J.
