I wish to testify to the efficacy and all-healing power of Christian Science, feeling that some may be benefited by this truthful statement. I hardly know where to begin, having derived so many benefits, but will state that about fifteen years ago I had a sever and stubborn attack of rheumatism which confined me to bed, and I could get in no other position than on my back for about six months. After trying several of the best physicians, Hot Springs, etc., I was relieved, not cured. For several years I was comparatively free from the ailment, but was always having some slight pain, and from then until about two years ago I had three or four attacks, lasting anywhere from a week to a year. During that period I suffered intense agony and took a great quantity of medicine.

About two years ago, when I had my last attack, I tried different reputable physicians with nothing but bad results. After a long period of suffering, often wishing for death as a possible relief, my aunt, who was not a Christian Scientist but anxious to do good, asked me to try the treatment, and begged me to talk with a practitioner with whom she was slightly acquainted. I consented, but was confined to my bed at the time, so the practitioner came and talked a while with me, among other things telling me that "God is no respecter of persons;" and I well remember that I thought unkindly and was positive that He certainly did not respect my feelings. She asked me to try to come to her the next morning; I consented, and though it was raining hard, I dressed, and with the assistance of a cane walked to and from the practitioner's house, about ten blocks. I began to feel relief at once, and gradually became entirely free, and have been ever since. I used to scoff at and ridicule this teaching, but am now a firm believer and know that others can be cured likewise.
