I wish to express gratitude for my healing, which is now practically complete. In December, 1907, I was supposedly on my death-bed, the chance of recovery promising only a useless life, since I could not walk or lift my hands. My cousin went to a Christian Science practitioner, who told her of the power of Truth to conquer the fear of death, and I had instant relief; but not knowing the help I could receive, I continued under medical treatment and had a very slow improvement.

In July I became interested in Christian Science, in the hope that life would look brighter in its light, and soon I learned how wonderful are its teachings. I then began to take treatment, and made rapid progress toward health. I can now walk six blocks without getting tired, that being the farthest I have tried to go; and can use my hands normally. I was not told of the practitioner's help until after I became interested in Christian Science; but the day of my marvelous relief from pain was quite clear in my mind, and I know that the truth saved me from passing through the experience called death. I give this testimony in gratitude to God, and to Mrs. Eddy, who has made life appear in its true light.
