A year ago this last spring, on a Friday evening, a Christian Science lecture was delivered at our church edifice and I was one of the ushers to report at quarter of seven. An hour before that, while cranking an automobile prior to putting it in the garage, I broke my wrist. At once I declared the truth of being, finished cranking the machine and put it away. Then I had dinner, dressed, and was in my place as usher on time, able to use both hands freely in showing visitors to their seats. The next morning an X-ray photograph was taken to see if there was a break or only a sprain. The plate, which I still retain, shows a break quite plainly. More mental work was done, and through the realization of God's ever presence I resumed operating my car the following Tuesday, and testified to this wonderful healing on Wednesday evening, much to the surprise of those who were present at the lecture.

From that day to this I have had free use of my wrist, proving Mrs. Eddy's statement in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 175), "But remember God in all thy ways, and thou shalt find the truth that breaks the dream of sense, letting the harmony of Science that declares Him, come in with healing, and peace, and perfect love," for all of which I am indeed grateful.—
