After a few weeks' illness with what the physician called heart failure in a very serious form, I was told that it would be at least a year before I could recover my full strength, but I instinctively rebelled against this verdict and having known of some good healing work done in our family through Christian Science I decided to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. To climb a flight of stairs to obtain this book seemed a great effort at the time, but I found it hidden in a closet and that evening commenced the chapter on Prayer. Every night for nearly two weeks I read into the early morning hours, and at the end of that time I found myself in normal strength and vigor. With this physical healing came release from the fear of death, and in the fifteen years since then medical theories of disease have largely lost their power over me.

I find the way of healing in Christian Science above the modes and methods of men and that Mrs. Eddy has answered the question of Pilate, as asked by the medical faculty, better than all others.
