So freely have I received of the blessings which Christian Science brings, that I feel I can do no less than give, trusting that my message may help and cheer some seeker for Truth.

After the birth of the younger of my two daughters, my health seemed to break down completely. The trouble was diagnosed by my physician as arthritis; and although he was most kind and conscientious, and did all in his power to help me, it was to no effect. From day to day I never knew which joint would be affected; and if the lameness and pain left me for a short time, a most unsightly and painful skin disease would appear; so that I was a constant invalid. Added to this, a severe nervous breakdown was experienced; and I had recovered from this but a very short time when a further complication set in, after the nature of phlebitis. Another physician was called, but seemed able to do little to relieve my suffering; and finally he said that I must lie flat on my back, not moving from my hips, as this was my only chance of recovery. This course proving unsuccessful, osteopathy was the next resort, but this too proved fruitless; and in the depth of despair my only comfort was the words from the forty-sixth psalm, "Be still, and know that I am God."
