In January, 1912, I was suffering from rheumatism, so I wrote to a friend who had often spoken to me of Christian Science, asking her to get a practitioner to give me absent treatment, as I did not at that time know of any one near by. My friend gave me the address of a practitioner only eight or nine miles away, but by the time I received her letter I was feeling better, and did not trouble about it. In May of the same year I was again feeling very ill, and this time I applied for help to the one whose address I had secured, and was healed in three days. I can never be grateful enough for the patient, loving help this lady gave me, as I was just a beginner in Science, having attended only two services at that time. Since then, however, I have read Science and Health and have been woderfully helped. My husband is an invalid, and a very great deal depends upon me, but I find God a very present help in all times of need.

In 1912 I had attacks of abdominal trouble, and my husband, who is not a Scientist, became uneasy and sent for a doctor, who wanted me to have an operation as soon as possible; but I refused, and again had Christian Science treatment. I telegraphed for help, and the pain left me within an hour after the telegram was received. In a short time I was able to get up and attend to my household duties, and was absolutely well by the next day. I should like to say also, that I have had a good deal of financial worry; but the way has been opened, and I am not now anxious about temporal things in the way I used to be, for divine Love has met my every need.
