In offering this testimony for publication I hardly know where to begin, as there is no end to the good I have received through Christian Science. I have been led by ways that I knew not. Old thoughts have passed away, new and right thinking has made me a new creature.

Possibly few have had a more remarkable physical healing. Using our Leader's words, I had "committed liver complaint" (Science and Health, p. 431), and from the ill-boding results my offense in this line must have been grievous. From bilious attacks this disease had developed into what doctors call gall-stones, and if they know of anything else that can produce more violent suffering, I can only say I am only say I am thankful to have escaped it. In the winter of 1906, while suffering from this trouble, I came so near to death's door that practically all hope of my recovery was abandoned. An absent sister was wired for, and came to be with me, as my family all feared the end was near. After eight days of terrible suffering, the physician who had my case in charge called in three others; also one from another state (we having just moved to Nashville) under whose treatment I had been for four years. After due consideration, they decided that a surgical operation was my only hope.
