I should like to express my gratitude for all the blessings that have come into my life through Christian Science. For years I suffered from a throat affection, sometimes being unable to speak above a whisper for weeks together. The condition was gradually becoming worse, and the doctors did not seem able even to give relief. This trouble has been entirely overcome through the study of Christian Science. In the old days sometimes for seven and eight Sundays in succession I would be unable to sing or join in the responses at church. For three years I attended a Christian Science church in London and only once was I unable to join in the service. This was during a time of great trial, in which the temptation to be resentful seemed very great. I used to be continually taking cold, but for the past five years have not known what it means to do so. Sick headache, bowel disorder, painful attacks of rheumatism, and other ailments which made life a misery, have also been overcome. I used to be always taking medicine, but have taken no material remedy since my first reading of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, now over eight years ago. I knew then that I had found the truth and that it was the only remedy for every ill, and it has never failed me when I have been faithful. I am also very grateful for the overcoming of a great sense of lack, as the problem of supply seemed so terrible before I knew of Christian Science that I was ill with anxiety and worry.

My mother also has had many beautiful healings, and we have learned together to rely absolutely on God, divine Love, during the four years of war, in which my only brother has been at sea; so that we have been free from fear and he has been wonderfully protected. I am deeply grateful for the physical healing, but more than all for the better understanding of God, of Christ Jesus, and of the Bible, that Christian Science brings, and for the spiritual uplift that makes the outlook on life so different, so hopeful and pure and free, so helpful to others. Words cannot express my thankfulness to God and the Way-shower, Christ Jesus, and my gratitude to dear Mrs. Eddy for her loving life and courage.
