An overwhelming sense of gratitude prompts me to tell what Christian Science has done for me. For five or six years I have silently accepted the benefits which it has brought me, and I think it is time to express a word of appreciation. I had been subject to severe headaches all my life. I remember having very bad attacks when only about four years old, and I continued to have them until I was about fifty-five. I was then asked by my son, whose wife had been healed in Christian Science, if I would not like to try it. I decided to do so, as I had tried everything I had ever heard of. I therefore went to a faithful practitioner and was healed, and the healing has been permanent.

I wish to add that one day I stepped on an icy step, slipped, and fell, striking my ankle on another step and injuring it very seriously. I immediately had word sent to the practitioner who treated me before, and in a few days I was running the sewing machine. Another healing occurred quite recently. The trouble had all the symptoms of a malignant disease of the breast, but it was healed in about six weeks' treatment.

I am very grateful that day by day I am gaining a clearer understanding of infinite Principle, and trust that I may be influential in helping some one else to find the truth that sets free. I daily thank God for the precious gift of the wonderful book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by our Leader, Mrs. Eddy.
