I wish to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me. About three years ago I was a very sick woman, and had to go to a hospital and submit to a severe operation. As a result I had internal hemorrhages which the doctors seemed unable to stop, and a slight operation was advised in order to remedy that condition. Both doctors and nurses did all they knew how to do to help me, but without avail. This was my condition when I first became acquainted with Christian Science.

A Christian Scientist came to the hospital twice a week to distribute literature. The afternoon I was to be operated on, she came about two o'clock and saw me, but of course I understood nothing of Christian Science, as I had never heard of it before. However, she talked with me for a while then silently declared the truth. The result was that at four o'clock, when the doctors were to operate on me, they could find no trace of anything to call for an operation. They asked me what I had been doing with myself, and I replied, "Why, nothing." Then a doctor who had seen this lady at my bedside said, "Oh, one of those Scientists was talking to her today." The other doctors then asked me what she said. My reply was, "Nothing; she just prayed for me;" at which the remark was made in an undertone, "Can't understand it, but it is wonderful."
