Christian Science has done so much for me that I should like to relate my first experience of its wonderful healing. Until five years ago, I was as strong an opponent of Mrs. Eddy as any one could be. I looked upon Christian Scientists as somewhat wicked people; and I was exceedingly perturbed when my youngest daughter, who from early childhood had been constantly in the hands of doctors, told me that she intended to see a practitioner of Christian Science. I raised every sort of objection to this, and gave her a very hard time, hoping most sincerely that she would find that she had made a mistake. It seemed to me then to be such an unsympathetic religion,—no inquiries after her health encouraged, no medicine, no nursing, even when she appeared to be suffering in some way! After a time, however, not only I, but others, noticed a great difference in her for the better. She was happy; and her health had so wonderfully improved that I began to feel sure there was something in Christian Science after all.

One morning I awoke with a swelled and burning cheek, which I attributed to the bite of some insect, as many years previously I had been very ill with septic poisoning from that cause. I felt that I really could not go through the same experience again, and that it was the moment for me to try Christian Science. The practitioner who had done so much to help my daughter most kindly took me as her patient; and I shall never forget the first treatment, which destroyed all fear and made me confident of being cured. In about three days the swelling of cheeks and eyes had quite disappeared, and I was able to go out as usual. At the same time I was completely healed of a trouble of forty years' standing, for which I had taken medicine every night. I have had many other healings since, and I cannot be grateful enough to Mrs. Eddy for giving to the world this wonderful Science, which throws such light upon the Bible, raises one's thought towards the spiritual life, and overcomes all material ills.
