It is with gratitude to God, and to our Leader, that I give this testimony, hoping that it may be the means of bringing a cup of cold water in Christ's name to some one who is striving through material means to get relief from suffering, as I did for many years, but found no rest or ease until Truth, in Christian Science, freed me from my burden. Eleven years ago I was a sick, unhappy mortal, suffering from a very severe form of stomach trouble, experiencing at short intervals attacks of pain from which relief could only be had by morphine. I had been suffering in this way some eight or nine years, trying different physicians at different times, but had received no benefit; indeed I rather grew worse. I had become discouraged, hopeless of ever being any better, when at this time Christian Science was presented to me by one upon whom I had called in a business way. My appearance was such that she remarked upon it, and I told her that I did not feel well and never expected to be any better, as the doctor's treatment and the medicines I had taken did not seem to help me. I was asked if I had ever heard of Christian Science and was given some tracts to read. To me they seemed reasonable and beautiful, and the study of the text-book followed. Hope dawned upon me as I read this book; I could feel returning health, although I seemed to understand very little of what I read. I saw, however, that in order to be healed I must give up all material means and rely wholly on God. I determined to test this at once, and that noon I ate freely of almost everything that I had previously avoided. I returned to the place where I was employed, and everything seemed different. I was sure I was healed; and my appearance must have been changed, as my employer and fellow-clerks spoke to me in regard to it. When they asked what had done it, I could only tell them that it was Christian Science; that I did not know how it had been done, but I was very happy. I had found, through Christian Science, that God is an ever-present help.

I sincerely thank God, and also our dear Leader, through whom this blessed truth has come whereby we may know that all the manifestations of evil are unreal and untrue, and that the truth loved and lived annuls them,—makes them void. Christian Science is good at all times and in all places; it has given us an understanding that illumines the pages of our dear old Bible and shows us that its promises are true and real; that they are for our time, here and now, and that the continued study of the Bible and of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, will and does bring to our consciousness the truth of Jesus' words, "The kingdom of heaven is within you;" also of Moses' words, "That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth."
