In the hope of helping others I wish to tell what Christian Science has done for me. About eight years ago, when very ill I was advised by one of my sisters to try Christian Science treatment, which she said would help me. I had medical advice, and although I carried out all instructions I became no better, but rather worse, and was very depressed and weak, not being able to do anything that my sisters enjoyed doing. When it was first recommended I said nothing, as I had always disliked the sound of the name Christian Science, although I had never read anything about it. As time went on she again asked me to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, saying it would certainly do me no harm, so I consented. I have never ceased to be grateful for that day, for at once my whole outlook on life was altered and Christian Science gave me hope. The trouble, however, did not leave me at once, but I steadily became stronger. I then had help from a practitioner who was most loving and patient with my slow progress.

I was instantaneously healed of influenza and a strained ankle; although my foot was quite black and very swollen the pain left in a few hours and I was able to walk about as usual. I was healed of ringworm in quite a short time. I had great fear and a feeling of disgust over it; directly that sense was destroyed I was healed. I was healed in most wonderful manner of a very serious illness. I asked for help, and the symptoms which were many and very alarming were at once held in check and in a few days overcome and with the exception of one day, which was spent in bed, I was able to attend to my daily duties. In a little over a week I was well. Another time I had great fear regarding one of my eyes. It seemed to have something at the back of it which looked like a growth. I could not see well with it and was very much frightened about it. I asked for help, and in three weeks the eye was quite normal. For all these blessings I am indeed thankful and, as I said before, I have never ceased to be grateful for the day when I first commenced the study of Christian Science, which will set all those free who turn to it with an honest heart.
