Six years ago, when I was still a young student of Christian Science, Truth delivered me in a most wonderful way from great anxiety and fear about the health of my baby. He and I had been in the country to pay a visit, when he caught cold, and soon looked so ill that I decided to return home, though I wired to a Christian Science friend for treatment. My husband, who was not a Scientist, came to meet us at the station, and seeing the condition of the child, he telephoned to a doctor, who came to see the little one as soon as we reached home. After an examination, he declared that the baby had serious bronchial trouble, and left us a prescription. My Science friend came a few minutes after, and gave the child treatment. When I asked her what I should do about the prescription, she told me not to decide then, but to "leave it with God," which I did, with the result that the child was soon looking so much better that his father agreed with me not to give any medicine. The cough decreased in the night, and the functions of the body seemed so normal that I could give the doctor a true dismissing report the next day.

Four days later, although it was winter, the child resumed his going out for two or three hours a day; and how grateful I was for this almost instantaneous healing every mother will easily understand. It is, however, as a Scientist that I still think of the words of my friend, "Leave it with God," and their result, in correlation with Mrs. Eddy's spiritual interpretation of the Lord's Prayer: "Enable us to know,—as in heaven, so on earth,—God is omnipotent, supreme" (Science and Health, p. 17).
