In Psalms we read that the children of Israel "spake against God" and asked, "Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?" I have for many years been able to prove that God has furnished a table in the wilderness, through our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Science gives us an understanding of divine Principle, and the rule whereby to work out the problem of being, and when we demonstrate our understanding according to rule, the result must be correct. Many years ago, after the birth of a son, I did not regain my usual health. A practitioner was called, and after four treatments I was able to ride across the city on the street car, with comfort. I was healed. My little son, who was taking diphtheria remedies every half hour, was healed at the same time.

This proof of the healing power of God, through Christian Science, has been a beacon light along my path during these many years. I was left with a family of eight children to care for and educate, which to-day I can say has been accomplished. I had to say many times, "Therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed." The many temptations, trials, and victories have given me the opportunity to demonstrate a clearer understanding of God and of the nothingness of evil. I can only express my gratitude for Christian Science and for the privilege of class instruction and the many blessings that have been mine, by obedience to Principle.
