Gratitude for God's protecting care impels this testimony. Before I studied Christian Science I always recognized God's providence, but through Christian Science my concept of a just and stern deity located afar off has been exchanged for that of a God of tenderest love, omnipotent and ever present.

I should like to relate some of the experience which led to this changed concept of God. Last fall I finished my thirty-seventh season as topographical engineer in government service. During these seasons I have traversed 25,000 miles on foot, 80,000 by horse and vehicle, and 20,000 by automobile, not to mention thousands of miles I have traveled in steam and electric cars. In these journeys I have covered eighteen states from Maine to Florida and as far west as Indiana. A great deal of this travel was in outof-the-way places. The footwork was not confined to roads but took me through woods and swamps, on trails over mountains, and across plains. The driving was mostly on byroads, poor roads, through woods, and farm lanes.
