I feel that I have never been grateful enough for what Christian Science has done for me. I did not come to it for healing, as so many have done, but took up the reading of the literature many years ago from curiosity, as I had dipped into various ologies and isms. As I read I found this teaching logical and practical, but did not gain the spiritual understanding. About this time a malignant disease again manifested itself. I had been treated for this by the best physicians, but they told me there was no cure for it known to the medical profession. As I had sufficient understanding of Christian Science to believe it was the truth, I asked for treatment and was completely healed in less then a week. After that I took up the study in all sincerity, desiring to understand its fundamental teaching. While my progress was slow, I never wavered in my faith that this was the truth. As the years went on, bringing many deep shadows and "waters of Marah," I remained steadfast, knowing the fault was not in the teaching of Christian Science but in my lack of ability to apply it. A short time ago an incident occurred which led me to realize that I had never been thankful enough; that although I had always given Christian Science the credit for my healing, I had not expressed my gratitude, so that others might be benefited.

I desire to express my deep gratitude for that noble woman, our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, who was strong enough to stand by her colors and give to the world a reason for the faith the was in her, in such a way that all mankind to-day are being blessed, supported, and strengthened in their hour of need. I am also deeply grateful for the authorized literature, which is so helpful to me, and which is doing so much to spread this great truth throughout the world.
