It is with the deepest gratitude that I give my testimony of what Christian Science has done for me. I have proved this blessed truth over and over again for nearly five years, and it has never failed, no matter under what circumstances it was to be demonstrated. Recognizing that it is "by their fruits ye shall know them," I will turn at once to my wonderful healing in Christian Science. Five years ago last January there appeared upon my hands and ankles a disagreeable eruption, which rapidly grew worse and extended over more surface. For over six months the best of physicans worked untiringly on the case, at last finding it necessary to dress the affected parts medically every morning, for fear of serious results. Words fail me when I attempt to tell of the agony which I experienced under the seeming thraldom of that terrible disease. The physicians could not agree upon the cause of the trouble, neither could they give me any hope of ever being entirely free from it, though they were without exception always patient and kind to me.

In this condition Christian Science found and saved me. I was in New Haven, Conn., when my mother prevailed upon me to go to a practitioner for help, and never shall I cease praising God that I listened to her advice. After a few short months I was healed; yes, healed not only of that disease, but of severe headaches, a spinal affection, bowel and throat trouble, besides a difficulty with the eyes. I was made free! Is it not indeed a cause for gratitude when one is given such a practical knowledge of Truth, applicable to every form of limitation in belief?

My heart goes out with the greatest love and appreciation to Mrs. Eddy, whose teachings guided me to that great Physician "who healeth all thy diseases." I sincerely trust that my statement may help others to turn to this truth, of which the half has never been told.
