For the past ten years Christian Science has been my only physician, and it has not once failed me. One healing in particular I wish to mention. My husband and I were spending several weeks on a rocky island off the Maine coast. One afternoon we went to the end of the island, taking with us some Christian Science literature for quiet study. We had been on the rocks but a short time when we saw a storm approaching. In my haste to get off the rocks I slipped and fell, crushing my body violently against a projecting rock. As I felt myself falling I immediately declared the truth, knowing, as our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 424), that "under divine Providence there can be no accidents, since there is no room for imperfection in perfection." For a few minutes I remained in a semiconscious condition, but finally was able to rise and return to the hotel. Throughout the night the suffering was intense, although to the best of my ability I constantly declared the truth. Fear seemed to get the upper hand, and the next day help was asked of a practitioner in a distant city, there being no practitioner available on the island. The accident happened on a Monday afternoon, and by the following Thursday the healing was complete. At no time did I exclude myself from the other guests in the hotel, and I was able to go into the dining room regularly as usual.

I should like to mention another healing. After wearing glasses for over thirty years I was able to lay them aside five years ago, knowing that "sight, hearing, all the spiritual senses of man, are eternal," as Mrs. Eddy says (ibid., p. 486). "They cannot be lost. Their reality and immortality are in Spirit and understanding, not in matter,—hence their permanence."
