In the hope that this testimony will help many who are struggling with the generally accepted views of scholastic theology, as I was, and in gratitude for a helpful, consistent, reasonable religion, gained from the study of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I gladly write some of my experiences in Christian Science. The daughter of a minister, granddaughter of a bishop, with two uncles, a brother, and a cousin also ministers, I naturally heard much religious discussion and teaching from early childhood, but never did I hear that which would comfort me in trouble or stress of any kind, or that was a help in time of need, until I read a few copies of the Christian Science Sentinel given me by a neighbor. There for the first time I saw plainly that God is not both a good and a bad intelligence, but good only. The vexed doctrines of theology, which had worried me for years, were logically and satisfactorily settled by reading Science and Health.

I became so interested in the study of this religion, that I forgot to wear my glasses, which an oculist said would always have to be worn; also forgot my body to a great extent, and suddenly realized that I had been healed of neuritis of eighteen years' standing, sick headaches, catarrh, corns, a throat trouble, rheumatism, and an irritable temper. These healings took place nearly nine years ago.
