Before knowing anything about Christian Science I looked upon it as something to be avoided; so it was only absolute necessity and hopelessness which induced me to try it. For many years I had been under medical treatment, and had never been considered strong. I had also been advised to try an outdoor life, but after three attempts at this I was very much worse; so, after repeated failures and disappointments, I had no courage or hope left that relief or health could be obtained. The only experiment left to be tried was Christian Science.

My one desire had always been to be strong and well, instead of which, life seemed just a burden which one would be only too thankful to get rid of. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy was lent to me by a friend; and as I read the first chapter, I was instantaneously cured of a very long standing complaint. Since then, one by one, all my old difficulties have been healed. Soon after first asking for treatment I was able to take up work again. During the war this work was fairly strenuous; but I continued for five years and never had a day off because of sickness.

Just lately I had to undergo a medical examination, which found me entirely well. The doctor particularly remarked that there was no trace left of the anæmic condition for which I had been dieted and dosed for years and had had continuous injections without any effect. A few years after taking up the study of Christian Science I went to stay with a friend whom I had not seen in the meanwhile. She was so struck with the change that she also became very earnestly interested. Besides the physical healing, I have found in Christian Science a real and practical religion. It has been fully proved to me that physical healing is only incidental to the spiritual; and this is found as we seek the Christ—the one and only remedy. As we turn to God to learn what is real, we find that the presence of actual good obliterates all sense of inharmony. My gratitude for Christian Science and to its Discoverer and Founder, Mrs. Eddy, is more than I can express.—(Miss) Mary Beausire, London, England.
