As I have received so much peace and comfort from the Sentinel, I would like to use that channel for good in which to express my gratitude for Christian Science, hoping it may help some one struggling in the dark. Four years ago I believed myself dying of some incurable disease. A constant pain in the side, loss of appetite and sleep, and an emaciated condition of the body, for over a year led me to think it a malignant growth of some kind. I was too frightened to consult medical aid and I was rapidly becoming a physical and mental wreck. No one but those in a similar state of mind can comprehend this condition of fear. I had so many blessings, a tender loving family, but I could think of nothing but my wretched self.

When Christian Science was suggested I grasped it with the sole idea that it would help me to be more resigned to die. The first healing I received was from the knowledge that God is Love and does not send sickness and misfortune to His children. This was a joy. Then all superstitions under which I had been held in bondage for many years left me. In three months from the time I started Christian Science treatments I was absolutely freed from all misery. During this time I read the Christian Science textbook almost constantly, scarcely understanding one word, yet realizing in a way its power for good. My disposition, too, has changed and I see everybody and everything from a different viewpoint. The unfoldment of spiritual understanding seems slow but I know that understanding will come to me, for the promise to Daniel is also for me, "Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard." My gratitude to God, to Mary Baker Eddy, and to the dear, patient people who have helped me find the truth is unbounded.
