A deep sense of humility and love impels me to write these words of grateful appreciation and thanksgiving for what Christian Science has done for me. It was about eight years ago when through Love's direction I turned to Christian Science for help, physically ill, discouraged, full of fear, and tired of the world and what it had to offer. I had gone impatiently from one medical system to another, but without finding any help.

After having been away for more than seven weeks from the office where I was employed, one day I came across a copy of The Christian Science Journal which had been given by a friend to a member of my family some time previous, and which had never been read, as none of the family were interested in Christian Science or knew anything about it. When first I opened this periodical and read, I knew that there was healing for me. With a feeling of hope and joyful expectancy I went to the Christian Science reading room, where I obtained a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and was directed to a practitioner. I received treatment for about three days, and so completely was my thought lifted above the seeming material condition that with a sense of new found joy, spiritual uplift, and healing I returned to my place of business and was able to do more work and more efficient work than ever before.

With the removal of the clamps of fear, worry, discouragement, and the like, the body very soon resumed a normal condition. Stomach and bowel trouble, also a nervous disorder, vanished and I gained so rapidly physically that in a few months my friends scarcely knew me. For years I had suffered from an annoying condition of the throat, which after an operation only seemed aggravated. I did not mention this difficulty to the practitioner, as it seemed of minor importance. It was more than a year afterwards when I suddenly became conscious that since turning to Christian Science I had not even so much as been conscious of the existence of a throat, so completely was it healed.
