While in the Motor Transport Service in France, in 1918, I became greatly exhausted through exposure and much work. Later, a serious bowel trouble developed, in the form of impactions, which on one occasion lasted for sixteen days. After receiving medical treatment in Paris without relief, I underwent much experimentation, but with no improvement. On the French steamer, returning to the United States, the physicians gave my case their daily attention, in their earnest desire to aid me. This was followed by many examinations and much medical treatment on reaching America, but without the hoped-for results. Several X-ray pictures disclosed a fallen transverse colon. One physician stated that he did not understand how I could survive such a condition, and also said that an operation would be hopeless.

I finally despaired of receiving help from any material source, and was led to ask for Christian Science treatment from a practitioner through whom a relative had been healed of a tumor. This practitioner resided in a far distant city, but I had been assured that absent treatment would prove efficacious. This proved to be true, as a perfect healing was effected within two months. Two years have elapsed since this healing.

My gratitude to the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, is profound. I have found that not alone is there surcease of physical ills in the application of this truth, but that there also comes a calm, peaceful outlook upon the surging tide of mortality which means assurance, strength, and power, whereas before all was confusion and uncertainty.—William R. Duncan, Hinsdale, Illinois.
