Through reading the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"...

Through reading the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I was healed of continual headaches and low blood pressure in a very short time. This condition was the after effect of an attack of influenza; and a doctor had failed to heal me or even relieve me, and did not expect me to recover. I was so miserable that I felt I did not care to live if I could not be well.

I am very grateful that Christian Science teaches us that accidents are unreal. At one time a hammock in which I was lying broke, and I fell flat on my back on the ground. For a few seconds I seemed to be in terrible agony, but I struggled to know that God is Life, Truth, and Love, and that accidents are unknown to Him. Instantly the pain left and I was able to sit up, although I felt rather weak and shaken. I studied and declared the truth all day, but did not feel quite myself, although there was no more pain. That evening, in attempting to walk a few blocks, I found that there was something wrong with my backbone which caused some difficulty in walking. I continued to study and declare the truth and this disappeared in about a week's time, except that my back ached a little after sitting for a long time. I did not miss any time at all from work. A week or so later, while on my vocation, I fell backwards into our cabin. I again declared the truth, and seemed to feel no ill effects except that my back bothered me a little almost all the time when sitting. Before going to sleep one night, a short time later, I was able to realize so clearly that I was perfect as God's reflection and that this condition was no part of perfection, that when I woke up in the morning I was perfectly healed. That was over six years ago. I was also healed of concussion of the brain, which had been caused by striking my head on the bottom of a plunge while diving.
