I have received so much good from the study and practice of Christian Science that I deem it a duty to send my testimony. Three years ago I was down and out physically and nearly the same mentally. I had injured my arm and was unable to do any manual labor. The elbow had been sprained back until the joint was enlarged, and the ligaments in front were torn loose from the bone. The only means of relief suggested was to get a rubber sleeve to wear on the crippled arm.

Since I had a family to provide and care for, having my arm crippled caused mental worry, and like most drinking men, being what is termed a periodical drunkard, I went to the drink shop to seek comfort and help. I poisoned myself with liquor for three or four weeks and one morning in my stupefied condition concluded that I was sick and got hold of some dope that looked like quinine and took some. The stuff is considered a deadly poison. The physician said I had taken enough to kill a dozen men, and that ordinarily if one had taken but one twelfth of the dose he would have passed on. The result of all this left me with a ruined stomach, and anything that I drank or ate caused vomiting. I suffered until I began to feel that life was not worth living.
