Feeling the pinch of hard times, which prevailed generally...
Feeling the pinch of hard times, which prevailed generally in the West, I left my home to earn a few dollars. I arrived at a tie camp on January 10, and had worked there a month when I cut a small gash above my knee. Although first aid was rendered by the camp clerk, I developed a septic knee, and a bad one too. I was taken to the hospital, and my knee was operated upon. Shortly afterwards I contracted influenza, and later pleurisy; and as I lay in pain, the doctor came to me one day and asked me if I knew I was a very sick man. I replied that I had not realized it. He then asked me my wife's address, and sent her a telegram saying that I had septic pneumonia, that my conditions were unfavorable, and to come at once.
My brother, who is a Christian Scientist, though I was not and knew very little about it, had written to a practitioner in the city, and she arrived at my bedside in the afternoon, when I was at the very worst. I could not draw a quarter of a breath without pain. Her stay was short and her words few; but I was thirsty for God's healing power and drank in the truth freely, with the result that at eleven o'clock that night every pain left me. I fell asleep shortly after, sleeping soundly until morning. When the doctor came at noon I was sitting up eating my dinner; and you cannot imagine his surprise to see the great change in me. I asked him if I could get up, but he flatly refused, saying that my temperature was too high and I must keep quiet, as my blood was streptococcic. At the next visit of the practitioner I informed her of the doctor's refusal to let me up; and the following day my temperature went down. Seeing this change, the doctor allowed me to get up, and my recovery was rapid. About ten days later the leg ceased to discharge. I gained three pounds a week in weight. I had lost thirty-five pounds while in bed.
I should feel guilty before God if I did not testify to His loving-kindness to me; and I sincerely hope that many more may be brought to know of His love through Christian Science and the untiring efforts of the faithful practitioners.
