I am indeed grateful for the priceless knowledge of the allness of God and the nothingness of human opinions and theories. When but a small child I began the study of piano music, and as I advanced, practiced many hours each day on the most difficult compositions. At the age of eighteen years I was taken very ill and was told by our family physician and also specialists that I had tubercular glands and there was no cure for them. They urged me to give up my music, both piano and voice, and said I might prolong my days some by doing absolutely nothing.

Shortly after that we heard of Christian Science, and I was perfectly healed of a severe case of throat trouble within a few hours. Then I began to wonder what the Christian Scientist had done to heal me so quickly, as ordinarily it would have taken me from ten days to two weeks to recover from such an attack, and I had a great desire to learn more about this truth. I wrote to her, asking what she did. She answered that it was all contained in a book called "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and told me where we might obtain a copy, so we purchased one immediately. I began to study it at once, never thinking of my physical condition, but earnestly seeking the healing method. One day, about a month later, after unthinkingly performing a little household duty which was in direct disobedience to the doctor's orders, a great fear came over me. Immediately I put both hands to my neck, but to my surprise every lump was gone. I was completely healed.

This healing took place nearly fourteen years ago, and since then I have worked harder in both piano and voice music than ever before, but have never had the slightest indication of the erroneous condition. I led and directed a chorus in the open air on Sunday evenings for two months at one time, and often the weather was so damp and cold we needed to wear heavy wraps. At times I have been exposed to the most inclement weather, but have never had one bad result. I know that what God has done will stand forever.
