I am very thankful for what Christian Science has done for me since taking up the study of it over twelve years ago. At that time I was healed instantaneously of what seemed the worst temper any woman could have. When I had read only a small part of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I saw that God's child could only possess what was good, and that temper was not good so it did not come from God and could not belong to His idea. I am very thankful it has left me.

Then I had a fear of what I would do in case of accident, but I proved that perfect Love casts out fear. Some boiling fat was upset over my face and I could not see, but I had no fear and kept my thought firmly fixed on the truth of being, with the result that I was able to see quite clearly in a few minutes. In less than twenty minutes the pain was gone, and in less than three hours there was no sign of a burn on my face; but some of the fat had gone on my wrist, and I tried to hide the injury from my husband and some friends in the house, thus admitting its reality. As a consequence I had a big scar on my wrist for a fortnight. Through knowing that God is the source of supply we have been lifted out of want into plenty.

I am most grateful for the authorized literature, for church membership, and for class instruction, and am very grateful for the beautiful lesson of patience our dear Leader has given us.—(Mrs.) Emma Selina Shaw, Dalton in Furness, England.
