To express to all who may read this my untold gratitude...

To express to all who may read this my untold gratitude for the knowledge of God as given us by Mrs. Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and her other writings, the following testimony is given. In March, 1917, I was getting the morning's work done one day when a young man, hatless and much excited, came and said, "Your baby's dead." I told him that he was mistaken, that my baby was in the front yard playing, but he insisted. Then came the angel and all I heard was, God is Life. How I got to the car line, two blocks away, I do not know; I could only hear one thing,—God is Life. The young man told me the limited street car had thrown the child about thirty feet, and that he had been taken into a house near by. How grateful I was, as I stepped in, to hear even the little moans! I immediately telephoned for a Christian Science practitioner, then sat down and attempted to realize the "scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468). After that I carried the child home, knowing that God is Life and this fact would be manifested.

A physician came and laid down all the mortal mind laws, which I knew only the great Physician could make "of none effect." The practitioner arrived and stayed until the following evening. At noon the physician asked permission to call again, and when he saw the boy he said all the other laws had been overruled, but there was one more "if." In two weeks the child was able to sit up and walk, so treatments were stopped. The car had hit the face, but no scar was left. He is a very bright, active little boy of three years now, making us daily rejoice in the perfect law of Truth. On being asked to present him for examination last spring I did so, and the medical examiner pronounced him normal. There never was a doubt of the healing to me, and I am so glad to say it was only through Christian Science treatment that it could have been possible.

I hope to let my light so shine that others will learn that God is Love.—(Mrs.) Edith Mason, Seelyville, Ind.
