I wish to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me. I was a sufferer from asthmatic trouble for about fifteen years, sometimes being unable to do anything for weeks at a time. From one to two months every summer I was comparatively useless, although I tried almost everything I heard of in the materia medica line; and being a druggist, I made a special study of the various so-called remedies, only to find that the more I studied and tried the less help I seemed to receive from material means. I was treated by eight different physicians in that time, but none of them could afford me more than temporary relief. The last remedy tried was a hypodermic injection of morphine, and the doctor said he was afraid I would not pull through as my heart action was so weak. I had to resign my position as head clerk in the prescription department of one of the largest drug-stores in New York city in 1893, as the doctor said I must go West or I would not live very long; but that did not materially improve my condition.

Christian Science was first brought to my notice in 1903, by a dear cousin who had been healed through its influence, and as I had tried about everything else and had failed to get relief, I was willing to try anything that promised to help me. After a few treatments I could eat anything I wanted without any fear of its bringing on an attack of illness, whereas prior to that time I was in constant trouble, although I ate only such food as the doctor said I was able to digest. I have also been healed of the other diseases, as well as of a very hasty temper and profuse blasphemy, although I had taken treatment only for the asthmatic trouble. I had not been much interested as to whether there was a God or not, and hardly ever went to church, but I find through Christian Science that God is a God of love, and the Bible and Science and Health are my daily study. I thank God for a better understanding of the Bible through the illumination of Science and Health, as given to us by Mrs. Eddy, and I am trying to live so that my life may attest my sincerity.—William Legate, Kalamazoo, Mich.
