With a deep sense of gratitude I give this testimony of what Christian Science has done for me. As a child I was considered very delicate and was pampered, doctored, and pitied, until at a very early age I considered myself a semi-invalid. A violent temper went uncurbed, owing to my highstrung, nervous temperament. Four years after marriage a baby came into our lives, and when it passed away three weeks after birth, the shock and my grief were so great that I was confined to my bed for many months with nervous prostration. In the course of time two more children came to us and my fear that they, too, might pass on was so great that the strain was almost more than I could bear.

At this time a very dear neighbor gave me a copy of the Sentinel, but in a few days I returned it to her without having glanced at it. Soon after this I decided to consult a doctor as I was very miserable. I was told that I was suffering from a malignant growth, which must be removed at once. In a very panic of fear I was rushed to the hospital and underwent a very serious operation. It was months before I was at all strong again and I was in constant fear that the disease would return. Discord in our home at this time added greatly to my misery. Then one day the symptoms for which I constantly looked, with a dread that is past description, reappeared. My doctor confirmed my fears and told me to come to him again in two weeks for another examination. The thought of another operation, with no assurance of healing, was unbearable. I felt that there was absolutely no hope for me and entertained the thought of self-destruction.
