It is now over nine years since I took up the study of Christian Science; and during that time divine Mind has been my only medicine, and divine Love has met my every need.

I have had many problems to solve, but thrbugh entire reliance on Truth they have been met and overcome; and I can sincerely say that God has been my "refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." My gratitude is called forth by all the love and kindness of practitioners and friends, so lovingly and willingly given in time of trouble.

I should like to mention one physical healing which I experienced during the summer of 1921. I was asked to go and stay with my sister while the rest of the family were on holiday. I did so, and while there I seemed to be taken very ill with what had been previously diagnosed as appendicitis. This was on a Wednesday afternoon, and I thought if I could only manage to attend church in the evening I should be healed. But when the time for church arrived I found it impossible to walk, so I asked for help from a practitioner, whose services were willingly given. During the night I seemed very ill, and my sister, not being interested in Christian Science, became very fearful. But for the peace that came to me, consequent upon my absolute reliance on God, I can never express my gratitude. Although at the time my healing seemed slow, I was perfectly healed. For the greater desire for spiritual understanding, the knowledge of the truth that makes free, and for all the blessings of this experience I am truly grateful.
