I wish to tell briefly what Christian Science has done for me. I had been sick for a period of about seven years, my trouble having come from overwork. In November, 1908, I left San Francisco for San Diego, seeking health in a change of climate. Prior to this I had fallen three times from heart trouble. I also had bronchial trouble, accompanied with a bad cough, which had been with me for about five years day night. I had not been able to retain any solid food for over a year. My kidneys were said to be diseased and I did not sleep well. I had been treated for these troubles by doctors and magnetic healers until they could do nothing more for me.

In December, 1908, I decided to take up Christian Science as a last resort. While in San Diego I was sent to a practitioner by a friend who was not a Christian Scientist. After the first treatment the pain in the head left me, and inside of five days I was able to get some rest. I had been obliged to sit up in a chair at night for some time. On being relieved of the pain. I began to realize that Christian Science had something more behind it than human will–power; so I continued to take treatment, and was healed. The practitioner explained to me that Christian Science, when lived, means more than the mere healing of the body. It purifies character and brings happiness, where without Christian Science there would only be trouble.
