I would like to express my gratitude for the many blessings that have come into my life through some degree of understanding of the truth as taught in Christian Science, but it can never be done in mere words, for by our works are we known. Many years ago one of my brothers had passed away as the result of tuberculosis, while a second brother was seeking health in the West, and a sister was ill at home suffering from a wound which had resulted from a second operation and was accompanied by a high fever. I was so consumed by fear that I was fast manifesting the same disease, together with indigestion and several other ills. As a last resort I sought a Christian Science practitioner for this sister, and she was instantaneously healed of the fever the second day and later of the wound, which had continued for a period of about two years; while I was so uplifted I was healed by reading the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and have remained healed. While I am unspeakably grateful for my healing, the thing I am most grateful for to-day is the different outlook on life which Christian Science has given to me. I never knew God before as a real help in trouble, although I was brought up by good parents and always went to Sunday school. There is no problem that cannot be solved through Christian Science if we apply its teachings earnestly and honestly. I have proved it enough in my own experience to know that this is true.

My heart goes out in gratitude to Mary Baker Eddy, our beloved Leader, who was pure enough, good enough, and selfless enough to give to the world this wonderful truth about God, and man in his relationship to Him, so clearly and simply that even little children can understand it. I am grateful for every world she wrote and for each periodical she established, and for the wisdom she displayed in every direction. Those of my family who are interested in the teachings of Christian Science have also received many blessings, and we are all indeed very grateful.—(Mrs.) Sallie Griffin Herring De Vall, Memphis, Tennessee.
