I feel that it is high time for me to take my pen and enumerate a few of the blessings which have come to me through Christian Science, for if I were to continue to withhold my acknowledgment longer, I should be unfit to receive more. I have had many a beneficial thought from the testimonies, so if these lines prove helpful to some weary wanderer, I shall repay in a small degree my debt of gratitude to others.

It is a little over two years since "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" was handed me by a neighbor, and it came at just the right time, for I then felt that I was going to pieces mentally and physically ; but that inspired book has taught me the way out of many ills. In Science we begin to understand that trouble of every name and nature is unreal. Mrs. Eddy's book is indeed a "Key to the Scriptures" in that it enables one to say with the conviction of Job, "I know that my redeemer liveth." I was reared in an orthodox church, but was dissatisfied with its teachings for years, because it failed to show me how to demonstrate what it taught ; so I began to visit other denominations beside my own. In that way I have received many good thoughts, but none that were altogether satisfying ; and this fact brings to mind most vividly the Scriptural prophecy, "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord : and they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the cast, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it."
