It is nearly ten years since I first became interested in Christian Science. For thirteen or fourteen years I had been suffering from what was called muscular rheumatism, and had been treated by the best medical doctors. At times I had some relief, but was seldom free from pain. Through the study of Christian Science I have been healed not only of that disease but also of other ills and discords to which I was subject. My healings have not been instantaneous; I have had to work hard and faithfully, but by so doing have received the blessings.

On September 16, 1916, I was struck by an automobile going at a high rate of speed and rendered unconscious, besides being to all appearances severely injured. My wife and daughter were notified, and a Christian Science practitioner was reached by telephone within a few minutes after the accident, so the good work was begun almost immediately. Those at the scene of the accident, however, rushed me to the hospital, where an examination was made and the injured parts were bandaged. The doctors feared the shoulder might be broken, but on being told that I depended upon God for the healing they allowed me to be taken home.
