My healing came through the reading of Science and Health and "Miscellaneous Writings," by Mrs. Eddy. This healing from imperfect sight, resulting at times in total blindness and a complete collapse in health, was a permanent cure, but above all was the awakening to a higher and happier realization of life, which meant more than anything else to me. For twenty-one years I have proved beyond a doubt the truth of the teaching set forth in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." The only lack anywhere is our inability to understand its depth.

Recently I have had an opportunity of again meeting in my own experience a big question. The existence of tumors was one of the ills in my mother's family, but I had never held it in any way as a part of my experience. That, however, was not sufficient, for about ten months ago I realized that this belief must be overcome. I knew that something had to be done at once, so took myself to task to find out what conditions were resting in my own thoughts. I found that the conflicts of life at home and conditions around me were being entertained in a very morbid way; I felt myself the victim of apparent circumstances. I was holding back, and putting up with things which were not harmonious. This was not the freedom of the child of divine Love; so I worked to rise above these thoughts, to come out from among them and be separate. I sought to rise so that no sense of injustice could come nigh my dwelling; to so speak the truth to error—not to some one else, but to my own false belief—that I could rise to the consciousness of peace, love, and freedom. I realized that the thoughts of depression were no part of God's child; that I need not come out from my surroundings to find peace, but must overcome belief in and indulgence of the wrong kind of thoughts.

At the beginning of the tenth day after faithful study and self-examination and silent prayer, the fibroid tumor passed from me, together with all the morbid, binding thoughts which had held me. The joy of knowing and seeing the power of God again manifested was very great. My love and gratitude for this truth increases daily, and to dear Mrs. Eddy my gratitude is never ceasing, for it is through her brave stand against the belief in so-called material laws that thousands are being set free and the kingdom of heaven is revealed to be here and now.
