It is with a heart full of gratitude that I give my testimony of healing in Christian Science. Almost six years ago, when my little son was thirteen days old, a consultation of doctors decided that I had an obstruction in a vein of my left leg and that any movement of the leg would cause instant death. I was expected to remain in bed with the leg supported on pillows for three months or longer. A Christian Science friend then asked a practitioner to come to me; which she did, and talked to me of Christian Science. She came twice before giving me treatment, and after each of her visits I felt so much happier that the physician coming in and finding me sitting up in bed said, "You look so much brighter! Has an angel visited you?" I dismissed the physician and had Christian Science treatment for some weeks, the result being that in a few days I was able to sit up and in two weeks could go out. My physical condition improved in every way, and I also received great help mentally from Christian Science.

Three months later I was in Paris, and in telling my experience to a physician, he replied, "Well, if you had done as the doctors said, you would probably have had a stiff leg and might have required a serious operation. But I am surprised that you did not die, for you took a terrible chance!" Even after this wonderful demonstration of the truth I was not ready to realize Science in its greater import. Then came family troubles, loss of friends, backslidings, a general mental upheaval, in which error seemed rampant, until I felt life was not worth living. But the seed of Truth was not lost, for in my innermost thought I knew that when I was ready to stand for Truth and Christian Science I should have harmony and peace.
