I would be ungrateful indeed did I fail to mention some of the many blessings of which I have been the happy recipient since taking up the study of Christian Science, I did not come to it for physical help, although I needed it, but took it up for the purpose of investigating its teachings, of which I had heard. I met a stranger, and upon being informed through a fellow workman that he was a Christian Scientist, I asked him if he would give me some of the literature. He said that he would be glad to do so, and in compliance with my request he brought me several copies of the Sentinel, telling me to read them and pass them on to others.

After reading the testimonies of healing in the Sentinel I was so thoroughly convinced that I went without delay to the Christian Science reading-room, and purchased a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, which I consider the best investment I have ever made. It is indeed the "pearl of great price," for through the reading of this book I was healed of the tobacco habit of nearly twenty years' standing. I had tried for years to refrain from the habit, and had used every material remedy of which I could hear, together with will-power; but they one and all failed me. When, however, began to read Science and Health, the desire for tobacco left me without a struggle.
