On the 2d of June, 1910, I followed the advice of a friend and went to see a Christian Science practitioner. On the 27th day of August, 1910, I was discharged healed and have so continued ever since. By occupation I am a scrub-woman (though I am confident that God will soon lift me out of this sort of work), and have had to support a sick husband and several children for many years. Some years ago I developed what is commonly called a milkleg, which, as I had to be on it at all times from four or five in the morning until late at night, became very bad. It was swollen and there was a constant discharge. I was treated for years in different New York hospitals with no good result whatever. I also tried everything that was known to me that was within my means, but all to no avail.
Finally I went to see a Christian Science practitioner. I could only go to his office once a week and sometimes not that often, so my treatments were mostly absent. I had to continue at work all of the time, for so many seemed to depend upon me. The healing was gradual, but steady from the very first treatment. First the pain, which had been for years excruciating, left me; then the discharge gradually stopped; then the wound healed up, and at last the swelling disappeared, with the discoloration; today, thanks to God, I am perfectly well, bodily and mentally. This healing was done without any charge on the part of the practitioner, though it was my wish to pay him; but he considered that my circumstances were too strained to allow of any charge. However, I expect, so soon as I have been advanced to a better position, to show my appreciation for what he did in the way that seemed quite a necessity.
To say that I am grateful is a very inadequate way to express myself. I hope my life will show, by the love and kindness and tolerance and thoughtfulness I extend to others, how grateful I really am.
