I gratefully join others in telling of how I was led to the blessed truths of Christian Science. In 1906 I was taken ill with a severe affection of the throat. At first I had allopathic treatment, but failed to improve; in fact the trouble manifested itself so severely that I completely lost my speech and could make myself understood only by nodding and shaking the head. I then tried homeopathy, though with no better results,—indeed, the conditions were aggravated. The physician, as well as my mother and brothers, had decided to take me to a specialist; but I had no confidence in drugs, as an acquaintance of ours who had become afflicted with the same trouble had finally succumbed to it, despite medicine and an operation.

My sister, who had experienced many benefits through Christian Science, then advised me to turn to it for relief. I immediately wrote to a practitioner in Berlin to ask for help, with the firm trust that our common prayer would be answered. With one treatment I was able to speak and sing as formerly. A wonderful sense of joy came over me, and I shed tears of gratitude. This quick healing taught me that in order to have our prayers answered we must believe with all our hearts.
