My gratitude for Christian Science can only be expressed...

My gratitude for Christian Science can only be expressed in a desire to prove by works this never failing, practical, and demonstrable religion. From childhood I suffered from nearly every so-called serious disease known to medical science. I submitted to seven surgical operations, each one of them, however, being submitted to without hope of recovery or relief. In July, 1908, I underwent two critical operations, one for perforating ulcers of the stomach, and the second, two weeks later, for obstruction following the infective perforations. Three weeks after this peritonitis in its worst form set in. I was under the constant care of an able specialist and nurses, but the surgeons told my mother that with the best of care my chances were one in a thousand.

For seven weeks I struggled between life and death. Then Christian Science came into my home and saved me. The first treatment brought the joy and peace for which I had so long hoped, and also a return to natural sleep. I had been a slave to the morphine habit for over sixteen years; for seventeen years I suffered from sleeplessness, for the relief of which the drug was first prescribed. In ten treatments I was free from bondage to this drug. I had worn glasses for over sixteen years, but the demonstration of dispensing with them was instantaneously made four years ago.
