One has so much to be grateful for in Christian Science, that I find it difficult to begin to tell of what it has done for my little son and myself during the last six years. We have seen fever, measles, croup, etc., quickly disappear under Christian Science treatment.

One day a door suddenly slammed and caught my little boy's hand. His fingers were firmly held, and he could not get them out until I opened the door. He cried at first, and I at once took him to his room. I wrapped his hand in a handkerchief, and together we repeated the scientific statement of being from our text-book (Science and Health, p. 468). Harmony was soon restored, and we were able to go downstairs. About an hour and a half afterward his nurse put him to bed, not knowing what had happened. When I told her later, she said she had scrubbed his fingers in his bath, and he never mentioned that they had been hurt. The next day there was only the skin broken on one finger to show that anything had happened.

At the beginning of 1910 I did not seem able to overcome for myself what, speaking from former experience, looked like a bad attack of cold. I asked a Christian Science friend here to give me treatment, and I was quickly well, being able to do my usual work all the time. At the same time my friend helped me to get rid of a fear of croup which I was holding over my son.
