I should like the world to know what Christian Science has done for me. I turned to it a little more than ten years ago, early in March, 1912. I was then in my sixty-eighth year, and had never considered Christian Science worthy of a thought, consequently had never given it one, till the day prior to consulting a practitioner. I had, however, gone the limit of all material means,—allopathic, homeopathic, osteopathic, and electric treatment in all their forms. I had also tried hot and cold baths, massage, and vapor baths, all of which were of no avail. The day I consulted a Christian Science practitioner I discarded all material remedies, and was immediately freed from bondage to materia medica, as well as from many physical ailments that had existed from early childhood.

I had a rupture that baffled the best medical and surgical skill available for sixty-three years and had been a daily handicap; consequently, I was not expecting Christian Science to heal it, but it did so, absolutely. I had for thirty-five years also been doctored for what many specialists diagnosed as nervous dyspepsia. I not only tried many kinds of drugs, but many times was put on a strict diet,—all to no avail. From the first day of taking Christian Science treatment I have been eating three meals a day, whatever I want and all I want with perfect comfort. I was also subject to violent colds from early childhood. At all seasons of the year I would lose several days from my business many times a year; but I have not lost a day with a cold since I took my first Christian Science treatment. I had rheumatism for many years, but have had only one attack since turning to Science. I was able to overcome that in a few hours by knowing the truth about God and man.
