If I should mention all the blessings which Christian Science has brought to me during the comparatively short time since Christian Science found me, it would take more time and space than I have a right to; but I should like to relate, as briefly as possible, some cases of physical healing which I have experienced.

Recently I had an attack of influenza. I knew the symptoms very well, because a few years ago I was kept in bed and under medical treatment over six weeks with the same disease. I did my best to check this new attack, but did not succeed; and through four days and nights it grew worse and worse. On the morning of the fourth day I felt so ill that I was about to ask my wife to telephone for help to a dear Christian Science friend who is a practitioner. However, I managed to get up and to go out; but the pain grew so bad that I had to return home. My wife, who saw how I suffered, desired to send a message to our friend; but before she did this I once more took up "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I opened this wonderful book at page 390, and my eyes caught this passage: "When the first symptoms of disease appear, dispute the testimony of the material senses with divine Science;" and this immediately set me thinking. I continued to read; and in less than an hour my eyes and nose stopped running; all pain left me; the chills and fever ceased; I was healed. I felt hungry, enjoyed a meal, went early to bed; and the next morning, Sunday, I walked the two and a half miles to church and home again, without the slightest trace of influenza, or even fatigue. Truth had gained the victory, and God had again blessed me!
