For year I was subject to severe attacks of rheumatism, and suffered intensely, sometimes for weeks together. After taking up the study of Christian Science, over ten years ago, I was entirely free for some time. Then the disease returned, seemingly with renewed vigor. After several attacks, which were overcome through Christian Science treatment, it assumed a chronic form. I tried for some time to treat the case myself, then went to a practitioner for help. The healing was not quick, but it was sure, the treatment extending over a period of several months, during which time I did not, however, lose a day from my work. I was at that time in the train service of a railroad company.

I can truly say that for the past three years I have been entirely free from this disease, and words fail to express my gratitude to God, and to Mrs. Eddy for Christian Science, the study of which has greatly enlarged my mental and moral vision and has made the Bible, which was formerly incomprehensible to me, the most precious of books. I am also, day by day, growing into a fuller and more perfect realization of the source of all supply.
