I have been to so many of our Wednesday evening meetings intending to give my testimony, but somehow I have never been able to make this demonstration. However, I can at least send it to our periodicals and in that way express something of the gratitude I feel for Christian Science. I know I shall make the demonstration of giving the oral testimony some time. I have had many physical healings through Christian Science, including that of a bad case of blood poisoning, bowel hemorrhages, nearsightedness, pleurisy, and influenza.

I wish especially to express my gratitude for the Christian Science reading rooms. During many years of business life I so enjoyed and appreciated the reading rooms. I went there almost every day, sometimes for a few minutes but more often for an hour, and always came away refreshed. It is a wonderful privilege when in the turmoil of business life to be able to slip away to the reading rooms for even a short time. I recalled recently one instantaneous healing I had while there. Six years ago I had a severe fall which resulted in an internal injury from which I suffered daily for a year and a half, and one day while on my way to the reading room I was suffering more intensely than ever and I realized that I must gain a better understanding of God to be healed, or go to a practitioner for help at once. I went to the reading room and sat down and studied for perhaps an hour, and when I arose from the reading table I realized that I was healed, and there has never been the slightest return. As Paul said, I had been "absent from the body" and "present with the Lord."
