I wish to express my sincere gratitude for the good that has come to me through the study of the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's works. For many years I was a sufferer from rheumatism, and I was in despair of ever being freed from it. While in this condition I read an article in The Christian Science Journal. The truth suddenly dawned upon me and I realized that in reality I had permanent and everlasting freedom from sickness of every description. From that moment I began to experience the healing power of Principle and in a short time the healing was complete, and it has been permanent. Since that demonstration I have been an earnest student of the truth, as revealed through Christian Science.

There had also been the experience of a seeming loss of all earthly possessions and a loss of friends, several of whom I had held dear in a seeming affection for attractive personality. These things were restored when they were seen in the new light which came from the study of Christian Science, and I learned that all true good is in the realm of Mind, and is forever intact. Now I have real friends who are with me in the study of Christian Science; and my various human needs are met through the understanding that Spirit is substance. As Mrs. Eddy writes on page 468 of Science and Health: "Spirit, the synonym of Mind, Soul, or God, is the only real substance. The spiritual universe, including individual man, is a compound idea, reflecting the divine substance of Spirit."

For these manifold blessings, I cannot be too thankful to God. How much I am indebted to Mrs. Eddy for the happiness and contentment that have come to me through the revelation of Christian Science I do not feel capable of expressing in words.
