I have often felt a desire to tell the Field of the proofs I have had during the past seven years of God's willingness and power to help in every time of need, but they have been so many and so wonderful that I have not known where to begin, for time and space would not permit me to tell all. I was in delicate health from childhood, being a constant sufferer from spinal trouble, supposedly caused by a fall. Until I was eighteen there were very few months which were not spent partly in bed, under the doctor's care, or taking medicine of some kind. At the age of eighteen I was cured of the spinal trouble through faith and prayer. This one devil was driven out and the house swept and garnished; but not being filled with the understanding which makes and keeps us free, there came in many other evils, worse than the first, and during the next twelve years I suffered more than ever before.

For many weeks at a time I suffered greatly from complicated conditions, and on one occasion a doctor kept me under the influence of morphine for ten weeks, saying it was all that could be done for me. For seventeen weeks at another time I was not able to stand on my feet, but through it all I constantly held to the one ray of light I had had, that God is able to heal. It seemed that every attack of illness left me in a worse condition than it found me, until I began to feel that it would soon end my life, and I sometimes hoped it might do so. I would not bring back to memory all those might of suffering but to contrast them with the seven years of freedom I have enjoyed since I began reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy.
