I have long wished to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me. Each healing has been like a "chief corner stone in my progress. No physical need could have touched me so deeply as to overcome my progress. No physical prejudice against what I thought Christian Science to be, but grief, inducing insanity, rendered me ready grasp at any straw for help. A kind relative took me to a practitioner, who instantly removed all prejudice against Christian Science. It required several years to overcome the whole of the error which had been the impelling cause of my turning to Christian Science and which has resulted in our present knowledge of the truth. I can truthfully state that I am absolutely healed of all melancholy and its every symptom. In the meantime I have had so many and varied proofs of the healing power of divine Science that it would not be possible to name them all.

In my family and in my work as a Christian Science nurse I have witnessed the healing of burns, sprains, dislocations, sick headaches, ptomaine and gas poisoning, chronic catarrh, and bronchitis. Twice I have been instantly healed of pleurisy; and a ruptured tendon, resulting in the loss of the use of one arm, was also made "every whit whole," as was a broken ankle bone, without loss of time from work. An injury to the neck, which was apparently broken, was healed instantly, calling forth from a physician the exclamation: "A miracle!" Christian Science gave absolute protection to my two sons during the war, and protected one of them from a terrible imprisonment. Every form of fear has been healed, family relations have been harmoniously adjusted, and the reign of love is acknowledged by each member. Positions have been obtained and I and my family have been protected repeatedly from business losses. Our Leader's complete works are my most treasured possessions.

I am most thankful to God and grateful to Mrs. Eddy for each one of our publications, which give us daily, weekly, and monthly food; for our reading rooms, in which I have spent many days in various cities. I am grateful for membership in The Mother Church, and in a branch church; also for church building experiences. I know that "Every trial of our faith in God makes us stronger" (Science and Health, p. 410), and that Truth is always victorious.
