The Lectures

Honolulu, Hawaii (First Church).—Ezra W. Palmer, lecturer; introduced by Mrs. Alfa M. Hatch, who said in part:—

That Christian Science does reclaim the infidel and raise from the couch of pain the helpless invalid, cause the deaf to hear, the lame to walk, and the blind to see, is daily being demonstrated, and was proved true in my own case and that of my father. I was afflicted with defective sight and defective hearing from birth, had worn glasses from childhood, but even with the aid of glasses at times it was difficult for me to see to read. The only help offered by the specialist whom we consulted for my hearing was artificial drums for the ears. As the result of an accident I had been unable to wear a shoe on my right foot for over a year. I had also been an invalid from a complication of diseases and was confined to my bed for three months, my last doctor saying an operation might help me but I never would be well. I was then persuaded to take Christian Science treatment, with the result that I was completely healed of all my troubles. I was strong and well; could walk for miles, a thing I had never been able to do when a child; could see without the aid of glasses; also my hearing was restored.
