I have often felt that I ought to make more widely known the first physical healing which we had in our home through Christian Science. When about four years old our little boy sustained a fractured skull. I had not long known of Christian Science and thought this would be a splendid opportunity for testing it, and it was proved to be indeed the same truth our Master practiced.

Half an hour after the practitioner was asked to take his case, the suffering ceased entirely, and the wound disappeared within twenty-four hours. The doctor who had been called was very much surprised to find the boy dressed and playing the morning following the accident, and the next morning he examined the skull very carefully and said the diagnosis had been correct, the child had had a compound fracture of the skull, and it was then healed, and he also said it had no business to heal so quickly, and if the child showed certain symptoms he must be notified immediately; but there were no after effects. Nine years have elapsed since this healing and the boy is exceptionally alert and intelligent. We shall always remember the relief from fear which we experienced on this occasion.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 494) Mrs. Eddy says, "It is not well to imagine that Jesus demonstrated the divine power to heal only for a select number or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good." We are very grateful for the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, for help received through the testimonies in the Christian Science Sentinel and Journal, and for the patience and love shown to us by Christian Scientists on many occasions.
