I feel that it is time I paid my tribute to Christian Science, and perhaps thus be the means of encouraging some one who is seeking help. In 1901 a very serious operation was performed upon me, and while greatly relieved. I found, after five years had passed, that my physical condition again pointed the way to the hospital. At this time a friend who had been greatly helped by Christian Science asked me to try it. I did so, and the pains which were driving me to another operation vanished. A very annoying catarrhal trouble was the next to disappear, and many other ailments vanished in like manner, enabling me, among other things, to dispense with eye-glasses. For over three years I have used no medicine at all, whereas prior to that time I took so much that I wonder how I kept track of the various doses.

When I sought the aid of Christian Science I admit it was purely to get ease from my sufferings, never dreaming about the religious side of it until I experienced the grand uplifting of thought. My friend presented me with a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and the reading of this book turned me to the Bible, which I had not looked into for years; and for this, above all else, I ask God to bless our dear Leader. That God is an ever-present help in time of trouble has been made quite clear to me during these last three years, and I am very grateful for the truth which has done so much for me.
