Twelve years ago I was suffering from a complication of diseases which neither medicine, hygienic treatment, baths, nor climate could cure or even relieve. This finally ended in a nervous condition, rendering sleep impossible, and as I feared insanity I contemplated suicide. All my husband's salary was used to procure material means of relief,—table delicacies, and expensive remedies, some brought from Europe at the suggestion of a physician then in charge of my case. Then a Christian Scientist on a visit here loaned me a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and when, at the end of less than two weeks, I had finished reading it I was well. When this book was loaned me I was a confirmed atheist, hating the very name of religion, and I had never heard that any one could be healed by its teaching. Had I been told that it gave the true definition of God, I should probably have refused it with scorn. The fact that it healed me under such an abnormal mental state as that mentioned, proves it to be divinely inspired. For twelve years I have not lost one day from sickness, and my husband has not lost three weeks from work during the same period. His income, instead of being needed for doctors' and druggists' bills, travel, etc., has been devoted to paying off a debt; buying a cozy home, and starting a bank account; besides which we have been able to help those in need when called upon to do so. This change from sickness, misery, and debt, to health and comfort, is literally due to my first copy of Science and Health, as my husband's income has not increased in point of salary. This case is but one out of the thousands that have proved the moral, mental, physical, and economic value of Mrs. Eddy's marvelous discovery. We are only two of the great army who call down blessings upon this saintly woman every day and hour.
