I cannot fully express my gratitude for the blessings which Christian Science has brought to me. For many years I was an invalid, and for fourteen months previous to my introduction to Christian Science I was a very great sufferer from chronic bowel trouble, with complications of heart, kidney, and bladder affections, also sleeplessness and great weakness. I had spent six months under the care of a specialist in one of our large cities, at the end of which he informed me that I could not recover. I then returned to my sister's home in this city, and two of the most prominent physicians here also informed my relatives that I had only a short time to live. In all these long months I was not permitted to eat anything but a little light food, and when my sister called a Christian Science practitioner, at my request, now two years ago, I could not sit up an hour at a time.

The practitioner came on a Sunday night, and asked me if I would give up material means, and look wholly to God for help. I answered that I would, for they had done me no good. I had my first treatment that night. My sister was very fearful of the results, although she did not voice her fear; but I made rapid improvement. I awoke Wednesday morning hungry, arose, and took a hearty breakfast with the family. Before the day was over I ate peaches, which I gathered from the tree myself; in fact, I ate anything I desired. My sister said that she actually trembled when she saw me so reckless as to my diet. My improvement was so rapid that very soon I was able to walk to the residence of the Christian Science practitioner and back home, a distance of twelve blocks.
