In October, 1908, before we knew anything about Christian Science, my mother was taken to a clinique for the amputation of her hand. I had my little daughter, then about two years old, examined at the same time, as her spine was somewhat curved. The physician told me that the ailment was due to hereditary conditions, that we should try special baths for her, and that if the curvature should increase, we ought to apply to a specialist. We followed his advice as to the baths, but the condition became much worse, and we were greatly troubled. We then heard of Christian Science, and asked for treatment for the child, who was then suffering from a fever, as we believed, on account of her teeth. One night she had a severe attack, and early in the morning I sent a telegram to the practitioner, asking for absent treatment. Two hours later the child asked for something to eat, and after two days she was entirely well, neither has she had a return of the trouble. Formerly, when she had an attack of fever, she would be ill for several days. The spine has improved, and we are in hopes that it will become quite straight.

Toward the end of December my mother suffered greatly with violent pains in the head. Early in January I again went to see the practitioner, and asked for absent treatment for my mother. When I came home that night, I immediately asked her how she was, and she said that the pains had suddenly left her toward evening. We see more clearly every day that there is but one source of supply which meets all our needs, and while doing our daily work we may feel God's blessing and how He leads us. I am very thankful to God, that He has revealed to us the power of Love and Truth, and also grateful to our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for accomplishing such a great work.
