I feel that it is time for me to express my gratitude publicly for all the good I have received from Christian Science. I have found it a very practical religion, applicable to all problems which come up, a great help physically; indeed, many so-called diseases have been overcome in a very short time. It has been a great help in my literary work and in music, enabling me to manifest more intelligence by depending on the one Mind and realizing that man being God's image reflects intelligence.

Christian Science has been my only source of help for many years—most of my life. One demonstration seems most wonderful to me. I was taken with a severe attack of cramps. At first I thought I could demonstrate over it myself, but it seemed so very severe that I was unable to speak above a whisper, and my brother, who was standing near, hurriedly called my mother. She treated me and in a few minutes I was myself again. Some months later, while reciting my music lesson, it appeared again and I felt as if I would fall off the stool, but this time I overcame it so quickly that my teacher never knew about it. At another time I met with a very severe accident. While helping to wash I fell and collided with one of the water pipes, but instantly I realized that there are no accidents in God's kingdom. I did not stop working and in a few moments all pain was gone, and the discoloration also. I had chills and fever, but in a short time with faithful work and study and the help of a practitioner my condition was normal again. One noon, while removing a pot with boiling water from the stove, the kettle tilted and some of the contents went into my slipper, but by declaring and knowing the truth for myself, all sense of burning had ceased by two o'clock, and I walked a mile and a half without any inconvenience. One thing I am most grateful for was the healing of my eyes when I was almost blind. This healing came slowly, but I was thereby compelled to study more faithfully and thus gain a clearer understanding of Truth. I am likewise very grateful for the overcoming of a great desire to read novels.

Christian Science was brought to my notice by the healing of my mother, who seemed to be in the last stages of catarrh of the throat and head. We do not live very near a Christian Science church, but we have the Quarterly, Sentinel, and Journal, for which we are deeply thankful. I love to read all the authorized literature. The physical healing is not to be compared with the spiritual uplift. A deep sense of sorrow has also been overcome. I am most grateful to dear Mrs. Eddy, who has shown us the way.
