I wish to express my thankfulness for what Christian Science...

I wish to express my thankfulness for what Christian Science has done for me during the last six years. From birth I was considered weak and sickly, and physicians said I would probably not live to grow up. Until past thirty years of age I cannot remember a day that I did not feel tired or sick, although, my father being a physician, all material remedies possible were given for my relief. I had heard of Christian Science, and while at school boarded with a family who were Scientists, but was so prejudiced that I would not even attend one of their meetings with them.

About six years ago, however, my sister came home for a visit and told of cures through Christian Science which she knew to be true. As my suffering seemed to be growing worse, in desperation I at last turned to God for help, although I thought I had always been trusting Him. There were no Christian Scientists living near, so I wrote to a practitioner in Washington, District of Columbia, where my sister had become acquainted with Scientists. I also studied "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. Absent treatment was given me for about two weeks, and I was healed of dyspepsia, liver trouble, and a weeping sinew on my wrist. I had worn glasses for thirteen years, but had to discontinue using them, because my eyes became normal and I could not see well through the glasses. Gradually nervous headaches also left me. I had the habit of taking cold very easily, but seldom am troubled that way now, and any erroneous condition disappears in a few hours, as the truth is realized.
