I am so very grateful for all that Christian Science has done for me. It has been a revelation to me of divine Love. Although just at the beginning of this road to Truth, I have had wonderful proofs, both physical and moral: in Christian Science the two go side by side.

During the serious influenza epidemic a few years ago, my little girl of seven years was suddenly taken ill with all its symptoms, including a very high temperature. Fear struck into my heart. I asked for help in Science, which was immediately given; but I was also told that for my own sake I must try to see through the lie, and cast fear out of myself. I worked earnestly in Science for an hour, but did not seem to be making any headway at all. Then I took the Bible, and opened it at these words in Proverbs: "Be not afraid of sudden fear ... For the Lord shall be thy confidence." This exposed the whole error; and after another minute or two I rose, happy and fearless in the spiritual understanding that God's creation is perfect and eternal, and that everything else is but a false picture—simply the mesmerism of corporeal sense. My little girl was sleeping peacefully, and the next morning her temperature was normal: she was healed.
