It is with great pleasure that I am able to give thanks for healing in Christian Science. In January, 1911, while hastening to catch a car, my foot caught in a frozen rut in a country road. Being in haste, for the car passed only once an hour, and not aware that my foot was caught, I must have given it a wrench, as I found difficulty in walking. It seemed imperative for me to reach the car in order to keep an appointment in town; therefore I declared the truth, and in spite of what had occurred, I was in time to take my place. The pain was distinct for a few minutes, then it faded from consciousness. On reaching Fitchburg, I had to walk several blocks before arriving at home, and did so without much discomfort or limping. Presently, however, I found that I could not put my heel to the ground. I therefore telephoned to a practitioner in Boston, and in a very short period all pain left me. There was no swelling or inflammation and I slept well that night.

Next day, except that I could not put my heel to the ground, there was no trouble. It occurred to me that it might be a good case for medical corroboration. I asked a friendly physician to come and diagnose the case. She came, and said that a small but very important muscle had been torn away; that with most women she would prescribe a plaster cast, but that as I was a Scientist, she supposed I could keep still long enough for the healing to take place without it. She seemed surprised that there was no swelling, no inflammation, no blackness, saying that there would be a good deal later, "with most people." She was also surprised to see that I could walk about on my toe without trouble, and advised me not to do so. She was exceedingly kind, and much interested in the demonstration.
