For the many blessings that have come to me through the study and application of Christian Science, I am most grateful. I am grateful to Mary Baker Eddy, whose life of purity and unselfish devotion to the task of discovering the rule whereby her own healing had been accomplished, has given to the world a working, practical religion. I am grateful to the friends and practitioners who have helped me on my way.

After a prolonged series of osteopathic treatments, some years ago, which gave me no relief, it became necessary, according to a physician and surgeon, for me to undergo an operation. This was pronounced a success, but I returned to my work with very little energy and no interest in either work or pleasure. Many physical laws had been laid down for me, and it began to seem that I could never be comfortable or physically free. While I was in this mental and physical state it became necessary to find a new place to live, where I could be kept warm during the cold winter. After moving, I found myself in a Christian Science family, and immediately I made an effort to find some other abiding place. However, no other place seemed as convenient, and I was so very comfortable that I stayed on; and I have every reason to be grateful for the privilege of being in that home.

There I had practical proof of the truth of Mrs. Eddy's words in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 210), "Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them," and of those in the closing sentence of the paragraph, "And not only yourselves are safe, but all whom your thoughts rest upon are thereby benefited."
