A few years ago I broke off a piece of one of my teeth, and as the rough edge was sticking into my cheek, and therefore uncomfortable, I thought it wise to go to a dentist. When he looked at my tooth, he was very much surprised that it was not painful; and he became more and more surprised, as he worked on, to find that he did not hurt me. Eventually, to his amazement, he extracted a live nerve from my tooth without my feeling anything.

I have ever since been particularly grateful for this demonstration of the power of Truth, not only for the physical relief, but for the lessons it taught me. It proved to me, once and for all, the truth of Mrs. Eddy's statement, on page 488 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," that "nerves have no more sensation, apart from what belief bestows upon them, than the fibres of a plant." Moreover, when I look back on my experience, in order the better to understand it, I see that on previous occasions what had seemed to be painful nerves could have been nothing but wrong thinking, which had appeared to my consciousness as physical pain. With the change of thinking the discord had disappeared.

I am deeply grateful for all that Christian Science has done and is doing for me, and particularly for the fact that in this Science we find an answer and a remedy for every question and problem with which humanity is faced. Mrs. Eddy has indeed unlocked for this age the great truth that Jesus taught and so fully demonstrated two thousand years ago,—Cecil Harcourt, Lieut.-Com., H.M.S. Wivern.
