Having derived considerable benefit from Christian Science...

Having derived considerable benefit from Christian Science treatment, I think it behooves me to make my case known in justice to the Cause and for the benefit of my fellow-sufferers. Off and on for about three years I was under medical treatment for infirm legs, and I had apparently quite recovered from inflammation of the veins. After a time, however, I again had dropsical legs, and was confined to a couch for about eighteen months. Then my doctor pronounced me incurable and said I was dying. He gave me only a few days to live. A neighbor who heard of my case came to see me and told me about Christian Science and the great benefits she had derived from it. I decided to take treatment, and asked her to get a practitioner to come to see me. After having days' treatment I walked down the street and paid a visit to the lady who had sent the practitioner to me. After having treatment for a few weeks I could walk about anywhere. That was over two years ago, and since then I have been able to walk about as well as could be expected of a man of my age, eighty-two years. My former physician admitted that my healing was marvelous. He thoroughly overhauled me about twelve months ago, and pronounced me then to be a marvel of good health for a man of my years.

I used to be a great sufferer from my heart, and some years ago my medical adviser in another district said it was so bad I might pass on any day. One morning the Christian Science practitioner rang up my daughter and asked how I was. She replied, "He is very well, but had a bad heart attack last night." The practitioner said, "Any hour, day or night, if there is anything wrong with your father ring me up and I will attend to him, but tell him he need not be afraid of his heart; it may never trouble him again." My heart has not troubled me since. One morning I was in a high fever and had a bad attack of bronchitis. My daughter rang up the practitioner, and in an hour or two I was perfectly well; and I have never been troubled in that way again. These two attacks took place prior to the examination made by the physician referred to above. It will therefore be seen that I have every reason to be grateful and thankful to Christian Science and to the practitioner who treated me.
