In the fall of 1906, when a brother-in-law lay sick in my home, and a doctor said he probably would not live till morning, I saw Christian Science save and heal him. So, when in the summer of 1907 I was taken sick, I called a Christian Science practitioner to help me. I passed through and out of the various phases of a dreaded attack of lung trouble in three weeks, without being in bed a whole day. My business is that of a market gardener, and August is for me a very busy month, so a part of each day, except two, found me attending to my business in the hot sun, without any perceptible injury from it. The papers were reporting many cases of fever in the city near by, and at this time a great fear of it seemed to be prevailing. The symptoms had attacked me violently one Sunday afternoon, but Christian Science, promptly applied, mastered it quickly for me. Not a trace of the trouble remained next morning, and after three weeks treatment I felt as able as usual to attend to my harvesting. In my family of seven we have all proven the power of Truth to be of greatest value in the removing of error. My wife and daughters were healed of various illness and the effects of accidents, while our little boy has been healed of deafness.
Last spring snow, frost, and cold threatened to destroy our crops, which would mean financial ruin for the year, but when the night looked darkest we clung closest to the thought of God's presence and power, as revealed in Christian Science, as did others with us, and though to appearance our crops were white and stiff with snow and frost, not a vine was killed, thus proving the statement in Science and Health (p. 125). "The agriculturist will find that these changes cannot affect his crops." For all these blessings we are deeply grateful to God; and for Christian Science, to Mrs. Eddy, its Discoverer and Founder, who is showing us the way.
