In 1907 I had measles, and three treatments in Christian Science healed me completely. Again, in the spring of 1908, while living in southeastern Missouri, attending school, I contracted what proved to be small-pox. As several cases were known to exist in the city, my parents wrote to a practitioner where we had formerly lived and who had helped us in past troubles. She acknowledged receipt of the letter, stating that she would do the best she could for me, but that we were at liberty at any time to get any one else if we so desired. I was never sick, and there was but one day that I was not up and dressed and able to eat my meals. The illness had a much shorter duration than such cases usually run, and I had no bad effects, such as scars from the disease. My parents, grandmother, and aunt were with me daily, and all of them were protected from contagion through the treatments. One who was well acquainted with the disease said that in my case it was thoroughly manifested.

Christian Science is our only remedy for all afflictions, and God is our ever-ready and "great Physician." I am trying to gain a better understanding of this truth daily, and have lately made several demonstrations for myself. Through the help of Christian Science I enjoy the best of health, for which I am very grateful. I am also grateful to Mrs. Eddy, through whom this truth has been given us.
