In grateful acknowledgment of help received through Christian Science I lovingly submit the following testimony: About a year ago, I was awakened very early one morning with the most acute suffering in my arm, and found that I could not raise it at all. Several members of my family were expected to arrive next day to spend the holidays with us, and it seemed an utter impossibility to entertain them under the circumstances, for although the truth had never failed me in times past, yet in this instance the suffering was so great that it seemed I could hardly expect a rapid recovery.

Truth, however, did its work most beautifully and effectively, and help was received instanteneously.

In twenty-four hours the healing was practically accomplished, the uplifting having been such that no evil suggestion could thereafter make me afraid. The arm which had been useless war restored to its normal activity in a very few days, and this in spite of the fact that during the process of healing I had two bad falls, which resulted each time in seeming injury to the arm, but which were overcome by immediate help from the practitioner.

I am deeply grateful for the help received during this experience, and I can only hope that these lines may go forth as a testimonial of grateful love to her whose purity of character made the revelation of Christian Science comprehensible to this age.
