It is with a heart full of gratitude that I send this testimony of the benefits received through Christian Science. I sought Christian Science treatment after being bedridden for nearly ten years, having lain in one position most of that time. I had been sent to the infirmary three times for operations. The third time I was sent home without an operation as "incurable," all that nursing and surgery could do having been done for me. I gave all my clothes away, thinking I should never get up again, but Love has supplied all my needs in every way. Very soon after having Christian Science treatment I was able to move myself in bed and then to sit up, and later was able to get out of bed. I then found that one leg was so much shorter than the other that only the tips of my toes touched the floor, and one shoulder was higher than the other. The healing of this condition came suddenly, early one morning while I was reading The Christian Science Journal. I got out of bed and found I could put one foot down as readily as the other.

I cannot express in words the gratitude I feel for the healing that has changed me from a helpless invalid, having to rely on others for everything, to a happy and useful woman again. I have also proved that age is not an obstacle to healing and usefulness. As I look back I can see how Truth has led me every step of the way. Many times the messages in the Christian Science periodicals have helped me when the way seemed long, and to those whose healing seems slow I would say, Be not discouraged, for it will surely come if we faint not.

Christian Science has given me a better understanding of God and man, also of the Bible. My earnest desire is that I may daily learn more of this beautiful truth and help others. I am grateful for the happy time I have had in the Christian Science church and for the loving help that has been given me.—(Mrs.) Mary Bancroft, Patricroft, Lancashire, England.
