With a heart overflowing with gratitude I wish to give...

With a heart overflowing with gratitude I wish to give my testimony to what Christian Science has done for me. My first introduction to it was in March, 1904, at which time I was a physical wreck. I had been under a doctor's care for nearly a year, and previous to that time had not been well for a number of years. We moved to Akron over five years ago, and every fall I had to call a doctor. The first one said I would very likely to move away, as I could not get rid of the trouble there. Another doctor said I had a complication of diseases, and my heart was very bad; that it would be three months before I would be much better, and I must not do any hard work for at least two years. I was very faithful to his instructions, but was worse at the end of the three months. My eyes also failed me, and an oculist told me I must have glasses,—the sooner the better. The glasses relieved me but very little, and it seemed as if the more remedies I tried the worse I became.

Finally a friend asked me to try Christian Science, and I am very happy to say that I did. After the first treatment I laid off my glasses without difficulty, and in three weeks I was completely healed. Never before have I enjoyed such good health as I have since my healing in Christian Science, and there has been no return of any of the diseases which the doctors said I had. If money could buy what little knowledge I have of Christian Science, there is not enough in this whole world to do it. I know that "man's extremity is God's opportunity," and that when Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," he meant it for every one, and this has been proven to me and my family in a great many ways. Words cannot express our gratitude to God, and to our dear Leader for making so plain to humanity this truth which Jesus taught.—MRS. VENA ALGER, Akron, O.
