In the hope of encouraging others I send the following account of my first experience of healing in Christian Science. I was desperately ill with internal inflammation and a chronic bowel difficulty, and the last doctor I consulted said he could not do anything for me; but if the drug which he had prescribed alleviated my suffering, to continue to use it. His words, coupled with the alarming symptoms which I then had and the sense of desperate illness which was upon me, were a death—knell, and I felt that if the doctors could do nothing for me there was indeed no hope. One day shortly after this, while I was lying on the sofa, these words of the psalmist suddenly came to me: "I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord." I marveled at this, and closing my eyes kept repeating the words, until I fell asleep. On awaking I felt a peace never known to me before.

The next day I read a short account of a lecture on Christian Science, and at the end of this account the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, was mentioned; so I immediately wrote for a copy. The opening words of the Preface riveted my attention: "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings," and with the exception of the time spent in eating and sleeping I continued ceaselessly to read. At the end of three days I was healed, and so convinced was I of the fact that I threw away all my mediciens. From that moment, nearly eleven years ago, divine Mind has been my all—sufficient healer.
