I am not a member of the Christian Science church, but I am a student of its teachings, and I feel such thankfulness to God, and to the dear friends in Science who have given me aid and encouragement along the way, that I must perforce speak, or feel myself an ingrate. I came to Christian Science by way of great bodily suffering and depression. I had passed through an operation which left me in a wretched condition—days of extreme prostration and nights of sleeplessness. Reverses of fortune, and loss of all those dear to me had made life seem unbearable. I often felt my courage ebbing, and thought I must end the struggle in some way. The injustice it had been my great misfortune to bear, the treachery, the perfidy of those whom I had loved, had borne most heavily upon me, and I sought surcease from it all as a seeker for truth. Through theosophy and "mental science" I traversed the dreary way. Comfort? I could not find it.

At last a copy of Science and Health came into my hands, and I found in it the solution of every life-problem. It has given me a new understanding of the Scriptures; they now glow with meaning and interest. Its study is removing discord and inharmony. I am deeply indebted for the example set me in Christian Science of a selfless life of kindness to man and beast. I realize what wonders Christian Science can work in mankind. There came a day when the old trouble seemed to return with renewed violence. I sought aid, and was healed, returning to my work refreshed, strengthened, and with renewed courage. This wonderful truth has changed completely my way of living and thinking. "Old things" are indeed "passed away." I have demonstrated the truth of Christian Science.
