In August, 1897, while living in Denver, after about ten years of great physical suffering from bowel trouble with its attendant train of ills, I turned in despair and as a last resort, without hope or faith, to Christian Science for relief. I suffered almost constantly and was unable to attend to business a great deal of the time. I had tried numerous remedies, dieting, etc., and also took a regular course of exercises at a gymnasium, besides undergoing two surgical operations, but all in vain. When I finally turned to Christian Science, my physician had told me he could do nothing more; and he fully realized that although he had treated me for fifteen months I was worse, not better, than when he began. He also declared mine to be the worst organic case that had come into his medical practice of twenty-six years. I had previously been treated by several well-known and reputable physicians, but they had diagnosed the case differently, and the only result of their treatment was increased suffering. From the day of my first treatment in Christian Science, Aug. 27, 1897, I have resorted to no other means of healing for physical ills. All material remedies were discontinued on that day, and have never been resumed. I am to-day a living witness of the healing power of Christian Science, and were it not for this life-giving truth, I sincerely believe I should not be here to give this testimony, To all of the above I can most solemnly testify.
