I send this testimony in the hope that it will give some one else an understanding of the healing and spiritual uplifting to be gained in Christian Science. I was sorely afflicted with catarrh of the head, throat, and stomach, also kidney and bladder trouble in a severe form, which caused a great deal of suffering. I had rheumatism so that I could not work at times for one or two weeks, also neuralgia of the head, which was very hard to endure. Besides these ills, I was a slave to the tobacco habit, used strong drink, and indulged in profanity. In the winter of 1908 I fell from the edge of a house roof, about twelve feet, and severely injured my back on the frozen earth, but I was healed without any drugs or material remedies. In the summer of 1910 I was kicked in my left side by a horse, and also had my wrist injured. Besides this I was severely injured internally and for a few days I suffered great pain, but I was healed through the understanding of Christian Science. I have been able to overcome high fever, also toothache, in a very short time.

I know that Christian Science can heal all manner of disease, as I have proved its efficiency after spending a number of years in suffering under material treatment at considerable cost. I thank God, also our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for all the benefits I have received through her teaching.—Platt A. Reynolds, Rochester, N. Y.

I am very glad to be able to give my testimony of the efficacy of Christian Science healing. I have been healed of both organic and functional diseases, so called, of long standing. I have also been lifted almost completely out of a sense of deep despondency due to continued suffering; but, great as had been the physical healing, I consider that the truth which I have learned about God, through the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, is far more important. The knowledge that man's birthright is dominion, and not subjection to evil, has comforted me many times, and I rejoice that I can demonstrate even a little of this great truth.
