I am very thankful to God for Christian Science and for what it has done for me. A little less than a year and a half ago it found me almost an invalid. Three operations which I had undergone had left me in a critical condition. Later I was thrown from a street car, fracturing my hip bone, which left me very lame. I met a student of Christian Science who led me into the study of it. I at first could not understand it. I believed in divine healing and had been healed of many ailments, but did not understand how I was healed. I asked God to heal me and believed He did, so through my faith I was healed. I am very grateful for the understanding that has come to me through the study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I have overcome many ailments, among which are stomach trouble, severe headaches, and shortness of breath, lameness, and the condition which the operation had failed to relieve. While away from home one of my daughters had influenza, followed by pneumonia. We telephoned a practitioner for help and my husband and I decided to bring her home, a journey of about three hours. Before starting I telephoned the practitioner to help us while on the train. She lovingly told me there was no danger and that my daughter would be perfectly safe. In two days after arriving home my daughter sat up, and was all right from that time on, for which we give God the praise.

We have had many demonstrations in our home too numerous to mention. I am grateful to God, and to Mrs. Eddy, the great and noble woman who gave this truth to the world. I am grateful for the many blessings I have received through reading the textbook and the periodicals, also for the Lesson-Sermons.—

Mrs. J. M. Allen, Saint Jo, Texas.
