It is with a deep sense of gratitude that I herewith submit the account of the wonderful healing which was my first experience in Christian Science. Of the thirty-three years that I spent in Japan, fully two thirds were marred by suffering, invalidism, or convalescence. I had many physical diseases, such as typhoid malaria, heart trouble, abscesses, nervous prostration, stomach troubles, and so on. Often I stood face to face with death. Then at last, when I had been lying in bed for half a year, almost unable to move for weakness and weariness, the physicians discovered that I was suffering from a tumor. This new trouble, added to a lifetime of suffering, brought me to the end of both physical and mental strength. I feared life as much as death; and I knew I should never be able to go through what the physicians called a major operation, which was in store for me as the only resource. I was walking in the "valley of the shadow of death," despondent, suffering, hopeless.

Then there came to me a "still small voice," saying, Do you know anything about Christian Science? No, I did not; but I might just as well try that as anything else. I was taken to see a loving practitioner, who commenced to treat me. I shall never forget the result. Within a couple of weeks the tumor disappeared. I felt the very moment when I got relief; and I cried out for joy, for I knew that I was healed. And I understood how those who were healed by Jesus must have felt. Afterwards I was examined by two physicians, who declared that there was no sign of tumor to be found.
