I should like to express in some measure my gratitude for Christian Science and all that it has done for me and mine. I do not know where or how to begin to recount the blessings that have come into my life in the four years that I have been studying Christian Science; but I can say with the greatest sincerity and joy that when our understanding of the Principle of Christian Science is honestly applied it never fails, and when an erroneous condition is not qurckly met I know that it is only because the error in thought has not been entirely destroyed.

We in our little family have been able to prove for ourselves the truth contained in these wonderful words, "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings," the opening sentence of the Preface to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Whenever we have leaned on the "sustaining infinite" our need has been met, whether it involved the overcoming of a physical claim or a lack of supply.

Though at times the road seems dark and rough we go on, and each experience proves to be a wonderful lesson. I have been healed of indigestion, headaches in severe form, backache, including fatigue at the slightest exertion, despondency, and many other ailments, among them the fear of ivy poisoning, which used to last for weeks in a most violent form. My little son, aged six, does not know what it is to taste medicine. At the slightest approach of any indisposition he asks for the ninety-first psalm, and I can sincerely say that almost always the claim has been met in reading aloud to him from Science and Health and the ninetyfirst psalm. When four years old, he was healed of croup in a few minutes, through Christian Science treatment, and the trouble never returned. I am more grateful than words can convey that he is learning the truth now and that he knows it is the truth, and that he will never have to unlearn the material laws, which are so many stumblingblocks in our way.
