I have long felt a desire to show my sincere gratitude for the many and great blessings which Christian Science has brought me. About twenty years ago I was confined to bed for over three months with a spinal fever, partial paralysis, and St. Vitus' dance. I was under the care of doctors all the time, and they said there was but little hope for me; that if I ever did get up from my bed, I would have no use of my spine, as it was so seriously affected. I had about lost all hope in material means, and felt as if God was my only help.

One day a dear friend came to visit me and asked me why I did not try Christian Science. I asked her what it was, and she related to me how she had been healed of a malignant disease through the help of Christian Science, and she said she knew I could be healed. I asked where I could find a Christian Science practitioner, and when she told me I was taken to one for treatment. In less than a week I was healed of my afflictions, one and all. I read Christian Science literature, but did not then understand it and never took any interest in it. I had been healed, and with that I was satisfied! A short time afterward I was taken with a severe stomach affection which troubled me for more than four long and weary years. I continually took treatment from different doctors, some of whom said that an operation would have to be performed before any relief could be had.
