As it is now over three years since I was healed in Christian Science, I feel that I should like to tell something of what it has done for me. It was in February, 1905, I took my first treatment in Christian Science. At the time I was suffering with severe stomach and bowel trouble, and other complications. I had tried different doctors; change of climate; operations; osteopathy, dieting, and finally "mental suggestion," but the only hope held out was from another operation. I was then induced to try Christian Science, which I considered a beautiful religion, although I doubted its promise to heal. After my first treatment, however, I ate what I wished and all I wished, and have done so ever since. In a short time I did indeed find my freedom, and now, as I look back, I seem to have come from great darkness into a marvelous light. I have found that I can trust God for everything. and I am learning what Love is.

I lately had occasion to visit the home of a neighbor, where there was a case of fever. It seemed to be contagious, as they all had it in turn and were very sick and under a doctor's care. I sat with the little girl for some time to relieve the mother, and a few mornings later I awoke to find myself seemingly very ill, so that it was impossible for me to sit up. I said to myself, What is the trouble? what does all this mean? At once came the thought of contagion, and I at once denied its power. I declared that as God's child I could reflect only good and not evil, and I was very much relieved at once, so that I was able to attend to my morning duties. I kept this thought in mind and did each task as it came. By noon I was entirely healed, and even forgot all about the suffering. I did an unusual amount of work that day, and in the evening, when I did remember, I was indeed grateful for the truth that makes us free. Words cannot express my gratitude for all that Christian Science has done for me.
