It is with sincere gratitude that I write this testimony

It is with sincere gratitude that I write this testimony. My profession is that of a performer with the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus. My husband and I work together. Our act is the last act on the big show program, and then come the races. On one occasion, after we had finished our act and were on our way to the dressing room, I had to cross the hippodrome track. The races had started, but I thought the race was at the far end of the big tent. Instead, as I started across the track the three jockeys and horses came at full speed, knocked me down, rolled me along the ground, and all three ran over me. My only thought was that God is ever present. I got up confident and with no fear, knowing that "accidents are unknown to God," as Mrs. Eddy says on page 424 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." My clothing was badly torn and soiled from the dirt on the track and bloodfrom a deep gash on my right forearm. I had four stitches taken in it, and all the while I was realizing that matter has no sensation and that God is All-in-all. I notified a Christian Science practitioner to work for me, and treatment was lovingly given. My husband and I do a high perch act; he is the "topmounter" and I the "understander." I balance him at the top of a thirty-foot pole. With his weight and that of the pole, I am carrying two hundred pounds—and I weigh one hundred and thirty. I had to use my arm in mounting him to my shoulders. I knew that God is my strength and power, and that my strength was there; my arm stood it wonderfully. We went through our act in fine shape. We lost only one performance; and on the third day we were doing our full act.

I am so grateful for this experience, because it was painless in every way. I was not uncomfortable one second; and it proved to me that the real man, or spiritual man, is always harmonious and perfect.
