I would like to give expression to the gratitude I feel for the benefits received through Christian Science. Fifteen months ago I was drinking to excess; the habit seemed to be fixed, and I was in despair. I resolved time and again to abstain, but was powerless to do so. A friend of mine, who saw the probability of my ultimate ruin, asked me to go with him to a Christian Science practitioner, but at first I refused. I had taken several drinks that morning, so I asked him to wait until some other time, as I did not want to present myself to a practitioner with the scent of liquor on my breath. He insisted, however, and more to please him than for any other reason, I went. Of course I wished to be healed, but had no faith whatever in this method. Thanks be to God, and to the teachings of Mrs. Eddy, I was healed by the first treatment.

Our home has been transformed from one of discord and misery to a happy and contented one. We have had several demonstrations in our family of the power of Truth over disease, and we are truly grateful for the spiritual understanding that has come to us. I have gained many friends, and my business has improved wonderfully since I was healed. I am not yet a member of any Christian Science church, but expect to take this important step very soon.—Gaston D. Phares, Wilmington, N. C.
