It is a tardy recognition that I am making of the many benefits I have derived from Christian Science. After reading the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, for several years and practically getting nothing out of it, I was in eight days healed of a mastoid abscess which had caused me untold suffering. I never saw the practitioner during these days, but spent most of my time denying her power to heal so serious a difficulty. That "one with God is a majority" was proved by this earnest practitioner, who demonstrated for me the omnipotence of God, which overrules all opposition and denial. This sign thus given me opened my understanding, so that the truth so clearly stated in Science and Health became clear to me. Since then God's ideas unfolding in my consciousness have enabled me to lay off glasses which I had worn for twenty-five years.

Christian Science has given me endurance and strength far beyond my expectation; has healed me of a so-called chronic and hereditary liver trouble; has met my needs when to sense there seemed to be no supply. I am grateful for class instruction; for membership in The Mother Church and in a branch church; for our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, whose untiring work has made available the wonderful truth which heals and saves.—(Mrs.) Katharine C. Herald, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
