A desire to have more of my friends and old acquaintances...

A desire to have more of my friends and old acquaintances know what Christian Science has done for me and mine, prompts the giving of this testimony to the marvelous healing power of the truth, when scientifically applied through the Science of Christianity. During an epidemic in this city, one year ago, my three boys were all affected, the youngest, five years old, being the first one to come down. The board of health was notified, and immediately sent one of its members to the house. He examined the boy, diagnosed the case, and we were quarantined. When the doctor was informed that we should depend on Christian Science treatment, he said the board had no objection to any one's having Christian Science treatment where it was preferred, so long as they conformed to the law in respect to the quarantine, etc.. and he left our house assured that we would endeavor to protect our neighbors by complying with the rules governing such cases.

A Christian Science practitioner was called in, the boy was treated, and within twelve hours after the treatment began he was well. Within thirty-six hours every symptom of the fever had disappeared from the second boy, ten years of age, and he, too, was healed. The oldest boy's case was a very stubborn and malignant one, every form and symptom accompanying this dreaded disease seeming to manifest itself. A serious throat trouble set in and it was a trying ordeal for my wife and me. Here, however, was to be made the demonstration of God's power, as revealed in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. The kind practitioner made daily visits, cheering us with words of counsel and hope, and through faithful devotion and a practical understanding of the truth brought the boy out whole. Not a vestige or symptom of the disease was left, and all fear of any evil after-effects was destroyed.
