I have been a student of Christian Science for fourteen...

I have been a student of Christian Science for fourteen years. I did not come into it for physical benefits. When I received the light which convinced me that Christ Jesus was the Messiah, good began to come to me in the form of supply. I had been out of work for a year and a half. I got a job; and in one year my pay was raised three times, and I was given a vacation of two weeks. After that my people sent tickets for my family and me to enable us to go to another place, where I got work from another company. While in their employ I broke my leg. Through Christian Science I was up the third day, and in ten days I went to work again.

We have a little daughter who was knocked down by a street car and was thought to be dead, but my wife treated her and she immediately recovered.

At one time when I was burned with steam, I was healed in four days. At another time, while I was washing the walls of the shop where I am engaged as a cooper, I was standing on a barrel trying to pull the hose loose from where it had got caught in some pipes. When it was suddenly released I fell backwards into a tank containing boiling lye, which was used for washing the barrels. The tank was about a foot and a half deep. My only thought was, Father, I am with You and You are with me. After I got out I finished my work and kept repeating the Lord's Prayer, the twenty-third and the ninety-first psalm, and the "scientific statement of being" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 468). I then told the superintendent I wished to go home. He wanted me to go to a doctor, but I said I just wished to go home. After I reached home I went to bed, began to read the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, and then fell asleep. When I awoke I was healed. The next morning I went back to work.
