My heart is so full of gratitude to divine Love, and also to Mrs. Eddy, for what Christian Science has done for me, that I feel I must send this statement to the Sentinel. When I was five years old I had a severe fall, and this supposedly brought on a form of epilepsy from which I suffered until I was about twelve, when I seemed to outgrow the attacks; but they returned with redoubled force at the age of forty-five and for more than three years my suffering increased with little hope of relief. In the early nineties my sister-in-law came out from Buffalo, N. Y., to our home in lowa, to reside. She brought with her a copy of Science and Health, and this was the first I had ever heard of Christian Science.

At first I would not listen to her, but she convinced my husband and children that there was something in it, and after a good deal of persuasion, to please them, I consented to take absent treatment. I had no faith in it myself, but a practitioner in Buffalo was written to and during my treatment I lost all consciousness of the body and seemed to be lifted above materiality. That one treatment healed me completely, with no return of the malady, and from that time I have understood that God is All-in-all, and He has been my physician, my very life, ever since. I am now sixty-seven years of age and do all my housework, as well as look after other duties on our farm.
