I have felt for some time that I should tell of the benefits I have received from Christian Science; but now that I have to do so I am at a loss where to begin, for I have received so much good that I cannot tell of all the blessings thatt have come to me in the short time I have been studying Science. I was extremely bitter against Christian Science, and said many things about it for which I am now very sorry; but I was ignorant of its teachings. Now that I have found the light, I hope to do something to help blot out all I have ever said against this saving truth as revealed in our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy.

When I was driven into Christian Science on the 12th of January, 1911, I was miserable in mind and body. I had worn arch supporters for about seven years, and for a number of months they had failed to help me walk, and my feet would swell and pain me so that I was almost distracted. I had worn glasses for twelve years, and they were causing me considerable trouble, for the heavy lenses which I was obliged to use gave me little relief, as I could hardly see for any length of time. I had headaches for over two years; sometimes they would last for a week at a time, and they were so severe that I could do very little work. For about a year before my advent into Science I had dizzy spells, and I had begun to think I was about to have softening of the brain, for I had a number of bad attacks which lasted a day or two, when I would reel about like a drunken man, and the feeling at that time was terrible. To cap the matter, I was worrying so that I could not sleep for more than an hour any night, and at the same time I had cold night-sweats. I rode by a large cemetery every day from the city, and many times in passing it I looked at the mounds and would say to myself that I wished it were all over with me and I were sleeping in that quiet place.
