[Translated from the German.]

Years have passed since my sister and myself became...

Years have passed since my sister and myself became convinced of the truth of Christian Science, and we have found therein satisfaction and help. I wish to relate an experience which I had five years ago. In calling on an acquaintance I tripped in going down-stairs, and fell down quite a high flight. My sister, who was with me, became frightened, and hastened to help me. I rose with difficulty, suffering severe pain, for I felt that my knee was badly hurt. As this occurred in Waldhausen, where we could not procure a carriage, I managed with my sister's assistance to reach the nearest street-car, and went to a Christian Science practitioner, who gave me treatment immediately.

After the second treatment the nervous chills vanished, and I felt better. I received absent treatment for two weeks; then I went to the practitioner and walked a long distance. No diagnosis was made, but I felt that my knee was seriously injured. My sister told me that it was terribly swollen and that she would have thought my condition critical had I been in the care of materia medica. I had present treatment for a few weeks longer, after which all pain and swelling vanished; I did not spare myself during the time, but attended to my household duties as before the occurrence, although I did this at first with difficulty. I am thankful to God for Christian Science, and that I was healed so soon.
