It is four years since my testimony appeared in The Christian Science Journal, telling of the healing of chronic rheumatism which had rendered me a helpless cripple. That healing I am grateful to say has proved permanent, as the following experiences clearly show. Not only does Christian Science heal us of disease but it does this by making us better mentally and morally, giving us purer desires and an abiding trust and confidence in God and His protection which no so-called material remedy can supply.

As a reservist I was called to the colors in August, 1914, on the outbreak of hostilities, and in November of the same year I went to France as a private. The night of the second of November I was pushed right up to the firing line. So meager was the protection afforded by our cover from fire that we were compelled to retire some two hundred yards and drop into a ditch in which we remained up to our waists in water for more than an hour. Whilst we were in the water a doctor's warning as to the fatal results of such a position flashed through my mind, but I immediately corrected this and realized I was in God's care; and so it proved, for no fatal result followed as was prophesied.
