After reading in the Sentinel of June 15 the editorial entitled "Living Witnesses," I can no longer refrain from sending my testimony with a grateful heart, hoping that some "weary wanderers, athirst in the desert" (Science and Health, p. 570 ), may read it and take courage, and know that there is yet a way out of bondage open to them.

Born of devout Christian parents and brought up in a Christian home, I became early dissatisfied with the inconsistencies of the Christian religion; and leaving home at an early age I soon drifted away from all church affiliation and its influence. When Christian Science found me it seemed to me that I was at the end of everything. For years drink had been gradually getting the better of me, and the periods of dissipation, followed by bitter remorse, became more frequent, until there seemed nothing left for me but a drunkard's or a suicide's grave. After a period of dissipation I returned home, heartsick and weary with the battle, determined to put an end to the whole thing by self-destruction, when the thought came to me that I had often said I would some day look into Christian Science, because the few Scientists I had known expressed health and happiness to a marked degree. I asked my wife if she would attend a Christian Science meeting with me and she consented; so we looked in a newspaper to find out where the services were held, for up to that time I had not seen a bit of Christian Science literature and knew nothing of the teaching.
