I feel that I should be guilty of ingratitude, if I waited longer to give my testimony to the benefits received through Christian Science. Seven years ago, while sitting in the office of one of the best oculists of Los Angeles, who had told me there was no cure for an affection of the eyes exvept an operation, and feeling that I could not submit to this, I saw on a window across the street the words "Christian Science Reading-Room," and I thought, Why not try Christian Science? I knew nothing of its teaching, but I went over and, after explaining to the librarian why I had come, asked the address of a practitioner. The result was that in a few days I called on one, and in three weeks' treatment I was healed of the eye trouble, also of approaching paralysis. Since that time I have used no material remedies.

For the physical healing I am deeply grateful, but this fades into insignificance compared with the spiritual illumination which accompanied it. For years I had been seeking God in various ways, and in my first conversation with the practitioner I knew that I had found the Christ. My heart goes out in love and thankfulness to our beloved Leader, for bringing to us this glorious truth, and to all who have so lovingly helped me. I wish also to express my gratitude for our periodicals; many times, when striving to solve some problem, an article in one of them has helped me greatly.—Mrs. Carrie E. Ressler, Monrovia, Cal.
