In July, 1905, I came into Christian Science for physical healing. At that time I was laboring under a disease which no drug could reach. As it seemed necessary, I took up my own case, and for a time I gained rapidly; then I seemingly dropped back. I then asked for help, which was given with good results. The old thought seemed to keep me in bondage, but I knew that the truth could make me well. There were times when I locked my door, so no one could enter, while I fought against a sense of illness from twenty-four to forty-eight hours. After the demonstration of Truth's power I was dressed and on the street in twenty minutes. It was nearly three years after this when the power of infinite Mind was revealed to me. Then I was on the rock! I saw that Love would do the work, as there is no sin, sickness, or death in the one Mind, for God is eternal Life. Neither was I an idler along the wayside. In helping myself I endeavored to help others, and was encouraged with good results.

I want to state that I am very happy. Not that I have plenty of this world's goods or friends. Those whom I loved and who loved me have passed on, before knowing the truth as given in the Christian Science text-book. Night after night I spent in weeping, longing for that change called death; but the understanding of Truth blots out the word death emphatically. Oh, what a friend we have in Truth! Never a scoff or a frown! Divine Love hovers over all. My heart is thrilled with love for the noble woman who, fearing nothing, stood at her post of duty facing the world's enmity.
