From invalidism, pronounced hopeless by physicians of two schools, and when doomed by them to drag out a miserable existence if I lived at all, Christian Science raised me to health and strength in a few days. In gratitude for my healing and that others may profit by it, I wish to tell the facts.

In September, 1909, after a severe illness, I underwent an operation for intestinal adhesions, said to have been the result of surgical operations at an earlier period. After this operation I suffered keenly for five months and was confined to my bed most of the time. All food distressed me, and at last opiates were prescribed to relieve the pain. I changed from one form of medical treatment to another, and though buoyed up by hope, so that I at first seemed to improve slightly, I soon sank back into a state of hopelessness.
