Fourteen years ago I first experienced the healing effects of Christian Science. In one treatment I was completely cured of an organic trouble which I had had for twenty years, and which three operations and the constant care of a surgeon had failed to heal. I had been in bed for ten weeks suffering from an attack of ptomaine poisoning, which affected my heart in such a way that if I moved too suddenly I would faint away.

This would happen as often as three times during the day. There was hardly an hour that passed that I did not take medicine, but without healing effect. While I was in this condition a friend suggested that I try Christian Science. Many people are under the impression that one has to have faith to be healed. I did not have the faith, but was willing enough to try Christian Science as an experiment. Two hours after the treatment was given, I was entirely well. Dressing myself without the least feeling of weakness, I ate my first meal in ten weeks in the dining room, then walked four blocks to get a street car; changed cars twice before arriving at my destination, then found I had to walk up three flights of stairs. When I finally reached the top landing, the practitioner was there waiting for me. She remarked that I had really proved the statement in the fortieth chapter of Isaiah: "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." I have never fainted at any time since. I have had many wonderful healings. Rheumatism in various forms, quinsy, neuritis, tonsillitis that I used to have regularly in the fall of the year, and nervous headaches have been overcome, as well as fatigue that prevented me from doing things like other people.
