Before I knew anything of Christian Science my health...

Before I knew anything of Christian Science my health was very unsatisfactory. I was very anaemic, and continually in a state of being run down. For about eight months I had been laid up, unable to walk, on account of knee trouble, the result of a fall. This was variously diagnosed by three doctors as due to rheumatism, gout, and water on the knee. I had just returned from consulting a London specialist, who gave me no hope of walking freely for some months to come.

Then a friend told me of Christian Science. I wrote at once to borrow the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and asked for treatment. Before I had read many pages I knew that this book contained what I needed,—the truth, of which Jesus spoke when he said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free;" and I read every possible minute. Bandages, medicines, and lotions were discarded, and I started walking at once. For about three days the knees ached and swelled worse than ever; but I persevered, and within a week they were healed, as was another ailment which had troubled me from childhood. This was twenty-five years ago. Before my healing I was told that I would always have to be careful and not do too much walking. Instead of this being the case, I have been able to walk as much as twenty-nine miles in a day with no ill effects whatever; whereas before the accident three or four miles were all I could manage at a time.
