I wish to express my appreciation and unbounded thankfulness for all that Christian Science has done for me in the past sixteen years. It has overcome sickness, sin, unhappiness, ignorance, and fear. During the influenza epidemic I was stricken with the disease in what seemed to be a very severe form; in fact, all the symptoms described by materia medica were present. As the suffering was intense I asked a practitioner for help and during that day the fever and most of the pain disappeared. The next morning, with the exception of a little weakness, I felt perfectly well, and two days later was able, without the slightest discomfort, to do my work driving a car for the motor corps, though the weather was unusually cold. My two brothers were at training camps where the disease seemed most rampant, and enjoyed the best of health, due to the knowledge that as ideas of divine Love they could not be made to suffer from the illusions of error.

In my experience in Christian Science every phase of evil to which it has been applied has melted into its native nothingness. In June, 1918, I graduated from a college which I entered four years before with the most inadequate preparation. This I am sure would have been impossible without the loving help of practitioners who kept reminding me that, as our Leader says on page 284 of Science and Health, "infinite Mind can have no starting-point, and can return to no limit," and that infinite Mind and not the human brain was my only source of intelligence. I can never fully express my gratitude for Christian Science. The Bible says, "Now are we the sons of God," and Mrs. Eddy shows us how to prove our inalienable rights as His sons in the overcoming of all untoward conditions.
