I had been a semi-invalid for several years when a lady came to stay with me for a few days who was a student of Christian Science, and after a few words of explanation of its teachings I asked if she would go with me to a practitioner. This she did and after the first treatment I felt a change for the better. In searching my thoughts, on my return home, to remember what the practitioner had said to me, the only thing I could think of was that God is the only power and I must not use any material means while she was treating me; so I immediately threw away all the medicine I had and have never needed any since. For the last eight years I, as well as the rest of the family, have depended upon the one Physician.

I wish to give a comparison of healing between the material method and the spiritual. Our boy fell and lacerated his under lip; he was taken to a doctor and it was several weeks before it was completely healed. One day, after I had begun the study of Christian Science, our little girl fell and lacerated her lip quite as badly. I picked her up, declaring that God's idea could not be harmed, that God is ever present, the only power, and His reflection could not reflect anything but the perfect spiritual likeness. She slept for perhaps half an hour, and when I took her up there was no sign of any discord, no inflammation, and the lip was completely healed; and oh! the joy and spiritual uplift of knowing that our own right understanding of God and man—the true man being perfect and spiritual, even as the Father is perfect—does heal instantaneously and permanently, certainly is a blessing that one can never describe or know until he has realized that truth for himself.
