Early in the autumn of 1903 I began to have a peculiar trouble at the corner of my mouth, which resulted in an abnormal growth. A prominent physician of this place was consulted, and after several examinations he informed me that this growth would continue to increase in size, that thehemorrhagic attacks would become more and more frequent and dangerous, and that the only thing he could do would be to remove the growth by an operation, which would of course leave a scar. When he had assured me that this was his ultimatum I went to a Christian Science practitioner and asked for treatment. This trouble had continued for over a year, growing steadily worse. It was late one afternoon when the practitioner took the case, and I did not look at my face again until the following morning, when on looking into a mirror I was overjoyed to discover that I had been perfectly healed in that one treatment. There was no sign of the trouble left. This is only one of many blessings I have received through Christian Science, and I am filled with gratitude to God that through Mrs. Eddy we are to realize this truth.
