[Original testimony in French]

With a deep sense of gratitude to God and to Mrs. Eddy...

With a deep sense of gratitude to God and to Mrs. Eddy I wish to testify to the wonderful healing wrought in my family through Christian Science. In May, 1924, my daughter, fifteen and a half years old, began to decline in an alarming manner. For a day she complained of pain in the abdomen. I asked help from a Christian Science practitioner, but the child continued to grow weak, did not eat anything, and was very feverish. At the end of two weeks I decided to call a doctor. He, one of the most eminent physicians, told me that my daughter was very anæmic, that he did not find any other difficulty, but that I must keep her in bed. The next day he returned, and gave me to understand that something serious was developing. He continued his visits, and one day informed me that he found all the symptoms of tubercular peritonitis. I did not yet have enough faith or spiritual strength to depend on Christian Science. The doctor announced that there were tubercular glands on the left side, and that it was necessary, even urgent, to transfer her to the hospital. It was necessary to employ tapping, and then she would have to go to a tuberculosis sanitarium.

My daughter was in despair at the prospect of being ill so long, and did not wish to go to the hospital. For my part, I could not encourage it. However, the temperature did not go down, and the child grew weaker. After struggling mentally a long time, I finally succeeded in intrusting her to God's hands. I worked steadfastly, rejecting error and realizing the truth as much as possible. Then, following the advice of a practitioner, I resolved frankly to tell the doctor that I had decided to have my child treated in Christian Science. From that moment, the improvement which had started became marked, and the water passed off naturally. The glands also were reabsorbed. Within a week the condition was completely changed, my daughter was up, and such slight error as remained disappeared gradually. After a few weeks she was able to go to the country for a visit. Acting upon the practitioner's advice, she went to the doctor of the village and told him her case. After using the stethoscope, he found her completely healed. For this great healing I render heartfelt thanks to God. I do not know how to express to Him all my gratitude.
