It is a joy and duty to offer this testimony, for I am eager to encourage others to accept Christian Science, as well as to do homage to our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.

In October, 1918, I was in the military service in Oudjda (East Morocco). I was sent on a mission to Casablanca (West Morocco) and crossed the whole of Northern Morocco, walking or going by train or by motor car, suffering from what the doctors had called sciatica. After a very painful trip, I was so weakened and so bent that I could no longer stand on my feet, and was obliged to enter the hospital immediately. After various treatments, which improved my condition very little, the doctors decided to take an X-ray photograph of my hip, with the result that five doctors pronounced my case hip disease, saying that tuberculosis of the bones at the age of thirty-one was extraordinary. They decided to place me in plaster of Paris; and I was to remain immovable for two years. But a few days later the cast was removed, as I could not bear the apparatus.

A friend brought me some Christian Science literature. Up to that time I had never heard the words "Christian Science" mentioned. I soon got "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and devoted myself to its study.
