Several years ago I became interested in Christian Science

Several years ago I became interested in Christian Science. My first experience of its healing power was very soon after I had heard of it. I was certified by two medical men and a magistrate to be insane and was confined in a lunatic asylum. For ten weeks I held to the thought that God is All, and at the end of that time I was allowed out of the institution under the control of a keeper. A few hours after my release his services were dispensed with and I resumed life in the ordinary way. I persevered with the little knowledge of Christian Science I had, and since then my condition in every respect has improved and I have been entirely free from all fear of a recurrence of that experience. I can only say in trying to express my gratitude for Christian Science that it means everything to me.

H. E. Taylor, Reading, Berkshire, England.

I should like to add to the foregoing testimony that a few days before I claimed my husband from the asylum I had an interview with the medical superintendent and he gave me no hope, saying the case was the same as when admitted. Medicine therefore claims nothing in this case. I write this to help those outside who are, as I was, to unlock the doors of these places and "to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free."—(Mrs.)C. Taylor.
