I write this testimony, hoping that it may benefit some one who is suffering and may be without hope of ever being well, as I was. For twenty-two years I suffered from what the doctors in Spain called rheumatic trouble. In the year 1886 I came direct from Spain to the State of Kansas, and began to take treatment of the local doctors.

Finding no relief, I went to Kansas City, Mo., entered a sanitarium, and took treatment for two months of a noted specialist. At the end of that time I decided to leave the sanitarium, as I was growing worse every day. Soon after this I went to Kirksville, Mo., placed myself under the care of a noted osteopathic physician, and seemed to receive some benefit; the relief, however, proved to be only temporary. In a few months I was as bad if not worse than ever before. I then sought treatment from different physicians—at Hot Springs, Ark., and in other places. I seemed to receive some benefit, and for several years I was able to work although suffering more or less all the time. In 1904 I moved to Clarksburg, W. Va., and began with the doctors here,—seven in all giving me treatment. Some said I had a serious kidney disease, and a number of other diseases, among them an eruption with which my whole body was covered, and I had no feeling in my hands or feet. The doctors all told me there was no help for me, and advised me to go to the Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore, Md. I went there, and was advised to place myself under a certain specialist for treatment. I did so, but returned to my home not one bit improved in health.

At this time a friend, seeing my hopelessness, asked me to try Christian Science, and directed me to some one here who was interested in this blessed work. I was advised to buy a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, also the Christian Science Quarterly and the Sentinel. These I began to read and study faithfully, and I commenced to improve immediately. After I began to learn what Christian Science really is, I had two weeks' absent treatment, and was healed mentally and physically. I was absolutely well in every way in about two months after I began to read Science and Health. I am thankful to those who have helped me to find the truth after fifty-five years of continuous bondage to error. God helping me, I will strive to live this beautiful truth, and help others to see the light as I have been helped to see it. God bless our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy; I am so thankful for her pure and godly life.
