For three years I was ill with kidney disease in a very severe form. I suffered great pain, spent sleepless nights, and was almost desperate. I then heard of Christian Science through acquaintances, and soon felt a sense of great trust. I read the literature, also the Bible, and before long discerned the truth of Christian Science. I began to eat without fear and without any ill effects all the things which I had avoided formerly, and soon I was completely healed.

My daughter too has been restored to life through Christian Science. In May, 1910, she expected to go to Africa. A short time before this she was taken with severe nervous attacks, almost amounting to insanity. The condition became so serious that she had to be taken to a sanitarium. For years she had been suffering with severe headaches, which seemed to result in the trouble just mentioned. I immediately called upon a practitioner for help for my child, and the effect was wonderful. She had been under a sense of disordered thought, but on the day of her healing through Christian Science the consciousness of her identity returned, and she wrote to us: "I again know who I am." It affords me great joy to state that this great blessing has come to us only through the recognition of the truth in Christian Science. My daughter is entirely well now, and has gone to Africa with her husband and children.

For all the blessings which we have experienced through Christian Science I wish to express my sincerest gratitude to God, and to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy.
