Christian Science was presented to me fifteen years ago, when, after many months of illness, suffering, and prostration, we were brought to the realization that materia medica could help me no further, and our physician frankly told my husband he knew nothing else to do for me. A friend called on my husband at his office and asked if he intended to let me die. He replied, "We are doing everything we can possibly do." "No," she said; "you haven't tried Christian Science." On his return to my bedside he asked me if I were willing to have Christian Science treatment. I remember answering very feebly, "I do not care."

Within an hour a Christian Science practitioner was by my side; and I shall never forget her words as she entered my room, "You are resting in the everlasting arms." The tears of weakness and self-pity flowed very easily; but as she talked to me so reassuringly, explaining to me that it was my right to be well, the self-pity vanished; and I rested, literally rested, as I had not for a long time. A wonderful new peace seemed to hold me; and even as she talked I fell asleep, so that I did not know when she left my room. I slept far into the night, waking refreshed, and fed with a new hope, lifted out of the grave of self and suffering. My recovery was rapid; for in less than three weeks I traveled with my sixteen months' old baby to my home in Washington, District of Columbia, absolutely healed, and so radiantly happy that my family in that city hinted that the reports of the long and fearful illness had been greatly exaggerated. Many ailments of long standing were healed at this time, among them heart trouble, terrible headaches, and the need of glasses. Since then Christian Science has been our only reliance, and we have found God our "very present help" in every instance.
