I had been sick more or less for twenty-five years, and from January until May, 1905, I was bedfast most of the time. One Sunday evening, when I was feeling very despondent and discouraged, neighbors who were Christian Scientists called, and during the evening my husband brought up the subject of Christian Science. I became quite interested in the conversation, and remarked that I thought I would have to take it up, as I had lost all faith in medicine. They said they would bring me some Christian Science Sentinels to read, which they did the next day. After reading them I was more interested than ever, and remarked to my husband that I could think of nothing but Christian Science, and believed I would like to take treatment, to which he consented. The same friends offered to loan us a copy of Science and Health, but my husband said we would buy one. We did so immediately, and I began to read it. After a few days we decided to call a practitioner, and I was instantaneously healed of bowel and female trouble, also of rheumatism.

Since then I have had many beautiful demonstrations of this truth that makes free, one of which was in a case of poisoning. This happened about four months after I came into Science, while in Estes Park, Col., on an outing with my husband and some relatives. The first manifestation appeared on my face presented a distressing appearance, and one eye was almost closed. There was so much fear expressed by my relatives that I, being new in Science, was unable to overcome it. I knew of no practitioner nearer than Denver, and I reached there five days after the mediately from the hotel for a practitioner, and I received help at once. In less than two weeks, notwithstanding the great fear manifested, I was entirely healed, without a this healing, also for the spiritual uplifting gained through the study of the Bible and Science and Health. It has made the Bible a new book to me, and the daily reading of the Lesson-Sermon is both a pleasure and a great help. The Christian Science literature is eagerly looked for and always welcome in our home.
