I did not come to Christian Science seeking healing...

I did not come to Christian Science seeking healing, although I have since had ample proof of its practicability, during many years' study of it. The first proof witnessed in our family was the marked improvement in my sister's health, after many years of semi-invalidism. Her complete healing did not take place, however, until a year later.

During the period of seemingly slow progress, though with promise always ahead, my brother was taken ill with an attack of tonsillitis, his condition steadily growing worse under medical treatment. The doctor was very faithful in his efforts to alleviate the sufferings of the patient, but was finally forced to admit that nothing more could be done. He had tried every known remedy. In this extremity, when the patient was but partially conscious, Christian Science treatment was asked for. It wa several hours before a practitioner's services could be procured; but we used the slight knowledge of Truth we had gained until the radiant face of the practitioner appeared at the door of the sick chamber bringing hope and the sweet assurance of a rapid recovery. In less than half an hour after she spoke the word, the patient was up and dressed and eating a hearty meal, the first food he had eaten for days. Prior to this time, I had been wavering in my faith, but I now had proof positive of the healing power of Christian Science.
