My profession is that of attorney-at-law, and I have been practising law since 1872. When I was forty-one years of age I was told that I was used up with hard work, and had what is called a nervous breakdown. This kept me idle nearly half the time. Then a Christian Scientist treated me, and I learned enough of Science to pursue my profession until about two years ago. At that time my legs and feet were in such a condition, owing to muscular rheumatism, that I could scarcely walk. I had been gradually growing worse for more than a year, and the old nervousness had returned. I had treatment, however, from a practitioner in this city, and I am now in the best of health and able to perform more work than I have ever before been able to do.
In the spring of 1910 a tooth troubled me, and I was told that I was getting old enough to lose my teeth. An abscess had formed and my face was swollen. I had no pain, but I went to a dentist, who told me there was nothing in dentistry that could save the tooth, and it must be extracted. I then asked him if God could not cure it, and he replied, "He can if you can get Him to help you." He said he had never been able to get God to do this. I told him I would try Christian Science, and I applied to a practitioner for help. She told me she had never worked on a case of this kind, but that God was as well able to heal my tooth as any other part of the body, so she began to treat me, and we both did all we could to know the power of Truth. I began to improve at once, and when I went back to the dentist, he said that it was not necessary to extract the tooth, for it was cured.
Words cannot express my gratitude for the knowledge I have gained from reading Science and Health, as well as for the spiritual uplift it has given me.
