About fifteen years ago, while I was still depending upon...

About fifteen years ago, while I was still depending upon materia medica, I was ill, and the doctors diagnosed my trouble as fibroid interstitial tumor. I had the care of excellent physicians, the best that could be had, and was treated by a specialist in such diseases. I wish to express here my appreciation of all the kindness and care given me by the doctors, and to say that I still have the most friendly and affectionate remembrance of their earnest efforts to help me; but they gave me no hope of relief and said that I would probably not live more than a year, and that during the rest of my time here I would be suffering and increasingly miserable.

My daughter had been interested in Christian Science for some years, and when I told her the verdict of the physicians she asked me to put myself under treatment with a Christian Scientist. I did so at once, and gradually but steadily improved, until the time came when I realized that I was completely healed. One day, after I had lost all sense of any abnormal physical conditions, I met a physician who had known me during my illness. He expressed his pleasure at my improved appearance and asked me regarding my health. I assured him I was quite well and free from the disease; but he said very plainly that he did not believe it, that it was impossible that I had been really healed, and assured me that even if the tumor had subsided or diminished it would reappear. Feeling that this was entirely untrue, I assured him I was quite willing he should make a thorough examination to satisfy himself as to the real condition. To his own great surprise he found no trace of the disease, and he frankly acknowledged that there had been a complete healing.

Since this healing I have been a student of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and I am more grateful than I can express in words for the blessing which has come to me through its teaching.
