Thanks be to God that I have lived to see the pure Christ teaching brought to light again through Mrs. Eddy, who has made practical the wonderful teachings of Christ Jesus, which were obscured by material theories and false doctrine. I shall never cease the striving to make this view of life my own, even though there may be some stumbling and rising again on the way thereto. Besides this main point, I must give thanks for repeated healing, and will tell about one of the most important instances.

I had suffered for years with my eyes; the trouble had set in suddenly, and I felt very ill. The specialist whom I consulted declared it to be a serious affection of the iris, and for weeks I was tormented both by the pain and the treatment employed. Even after the disease was temporarily overcome I was unable to see well for several weeks, owing to the after-effects of the remedy prescribed, and the disease came back for years at shortening intervals, so that besides leading a solitary life I was in a sad condition. A physician told me that my eyesight would be impaired through the frequent recurrence of the trouble, and finally gave me a remedy to use with the remark that, as a result of its frequent use, blindness might follow. I did not use this remedy, however. Thank God, I was then treated in Christian Science, and the effect was a most happy one. The disease began to go away when Christian Science treatment was resorted to, and it has disappeared entirely within the last few years. My sight is also strengthened.
