Words cannot express my gratitude for what Christian Science...

Words cannot express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me, so I am going to give a brief outline of my case and my condition before coming into Christian Science. I was said to have been born with infantile partial paralysis of the right side, caused from injury at birth. I was very delicate as little baby, so my aunt took me to a doctor, who said I had spinal trouble. I was under his care for a long time, but got no better. I could not sit up, walk, or talk, or use my right arm and leg. I was about five years old at this time.

I was then given magnetic treatment, and after the second treatment I did walk a few steps alone, the first I had ever walked, but after that I grew weaker, and could not even finish the ten treatments arranged for. My people then took me to a very fine physician and surgeon from New York, who said I had hip disease and must be operated upon at once before it was too late. I was taken to a hospital, and he operated on me then put my right leg in a plaster cast for ten weeks, and ordered two braces for me, one for day and one for night. While under this treatment, the doctor died very suddenly, so we had to try something else. Electricity and massage were then applied to my right side. I had massage for two years or more, then rubbing and osteopathy for nine months. In the latter treatment my ankle was badly injured; so I was worse off after I got through than before I commenced.
