The Master said, "Freely ye have received, freely give." I have received so much help and encouragement from the many testimonies in the Journal and Sentinel that I am impelled to send in my testimony with the hope that some one will be benefited and take courage.

I was led to study Christian Science through a very dear friend. The teaching as explained to me seemed very practical and appealed to me as no other religion had, but I took up the study especially for the physical healing. One Friday in February, 1914, I purchased a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and a week later, after having read it through, I was convinced of the truth it taught and knew it was what I wanted and needed. I called on a practitioner and in less than three weeks was healed of headaches, from which I had suffered almost continually for ten years. I was also able to lay aside glasses, which I had worn for seven years. For a while, however, I carried them with me wherever I went in case I should need them, as I had not been able to go without them at all before. One day while visiting the friend who had told me of Christian Science, I met a practitioner, and in talking with her the fear of needing them was overcome. I was healed in two days of a condition seemingly very serious, which I think would have been called ptomaine poisoning.
