Nine years ago I did not know anything of the power of Truth. At this time I was suffering from terrible pain in the eyes. I had been wearing glasses for more than seven years, but could not seem to get lenses to fit me and many changes had to be made. I was advised that an operation was the only thing that would give me relief, but to that I refused to consent. I knew a man who had the book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy and asked him to let me take it. I started to read with my glasses on, but could not see, so took them off and tried without them. To my surprise I was able to read for an hour without glasses, and I have not had to wear them since.

I was also suffering from a serious growth of fifteen years' standing. I got no better under medical treatment, and the doctors all said I must have an operation, otherwise I would never get well; but to this I would not consent. A lady who came to live with me then asked me why I did not try Christian Science, and her question brought to my mind the healing of my eyes, to which I had not given much thought. I immediately bought Science and Health and began to study it in earnest, and during my study this ailment disappeared. Bowel trouble, from which I had suffered for more than twenty years, was also overcome during this study, and headache and a wart on my finger disappeared.

For all the healings received I am indeed thankful, but most of all for having learned to love my neighbor. I am grateful for the privilege of class instruction and for all our literature. Words cannot express my thankfulness to God and to Christ Jesus and my gratitude to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy.—(Mrs.) Fannie Scherer. Sacramento. Calif.
