I had thought of Christian Science as a foolish belief, but as a last resort I turned to it; and the first treatment from a practitioner proved to me that Christian Science could heal, because in a few days I was relieved from fear and pain.

The remainder of the healing has been slow, but one wrong condition after another has disappeared. In three years I could go about without getting lost, and in the fourth year I was able to read. I am now enjoying my freedom, and am able to earn my own living and to read the Lesson-Sermons and the Christian Science literature.
