In August, 1913, a bee expert was helping me to transfer some bees from a skep into a frame hive. We had completed this part of the work and I had taken off my veil, when a bee stung me on the forehead. In a few minutes I was hardly able to breathe and felt very ill, but I staggered into the house and asked my wife to help me. I knew no more for about an hour and a quarter. It was over two hours before I was able to think for myself, and four and a half hours before I felt quite well again. I had a thorough night's rest and arose the next morning as though nothing unusual had happened.

Words can never express my thankfulness to God, and my gratitude to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, who has enabled us through the teachings of Science and Health to have a clearer understanding of the words of Jesus, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free;" also, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." I am also deeply grateful to my dear wife and daughter, both of whom stood firm and fought bravely until the victory was won, and Life, Truth, and Love realized to be the only power. My earnest desire is that I may grow to live more worthy to be called a Christian Scientist.— Joseph Howard, London N.W., England.
