I am most grateful for some measure of understanding...

I am most grateful for some measure of understanding of the truth gained through the study of Christian Science. I have been helped in many ways. About a year and a half ago, while away from home, I was staying in a boarding house, and one morning after breakfast was sitting in front of the fire, when I suddenly became unconscious and fell forward. Two large celluloid pins and a comb which were in my hair caught fire, melted, and ran down my neck and back. I was in the room alone, and although there were several people in the house no one either heard a sound or smelled the melting celluloid. The most wonderful thing to me was that when I became conscious again the fire was out. I feel that I was most wonderfully protected. In falling I had struck a knob on the grate which made a deep cut in my forehead. I went upstairs to the bathroom to bathe the wound and met the lady of the house and another visitor on the stairs. They were quite alarmed when they saw me and sent for the doctor straight away. I was able to keep my thought perfectly clear and asked for a Christian Science practitioner, who came shortly afterwards. The doctor did not come; he was out when called, and on hearing that I did not want a doctor, word was sent that he was not needed.

I can truly say that I did not suffer the least from shock, and, comparatively speaking, little from the burns. A kind friend whom I had met at the Christian Science church took me to her home and did for me all that was necessary. I feel absolutely sure that had it not been for the help I had in Christian Science and the slight understanding I had myself I would not be here to-day. I feel that I cannot express my gratitude for Christian Science and to God for His protecting care, also to our dear Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, for her unselfed love in giving to the world this glorious truth.
