[Original testimony in Swedish]

For many years I suffered from a disease in my feet,...

For many years I suffered from a disease in my feet, accompanied by excruciating pain. It seemed necessary to amputate part of the left foot; but after the foot was somewhat healed, after the operation, the disease broke out in three of the toes on the right foot. The specialists from whom I sought help were unable at first to understand my case; and after experimenting to the best of their ability, one after the other gave it up. Lastly, a skin specialist believed he had correctly diagnosed the disease; but even he found himself unable to cope with it, and after a time told my wife that he considered my case hopeless, as according to his experience the disease was incurable. He begged her to break the news as gently as possible to me, letting me understand that my future as an actor was at an end, and suggesting the contemplation of some kind of work which could be carried on while sitting down.

Such was the desperate and sorry condition of things when Christian Science was brought to my notice by a fellow actor who could not help telling me where I could both seek and get help in my great need. A loving practitioner was recommended, and I turned to her for help. The healing was very slow at first, owing to my inability and unwillingness to read on account of the terrible suffering I was undergoing; but through the patient work of the practitioner, the pain gradually stopped; and after several months the healing of my foot began to take place, and continued with phenomenal speed.

About the time the healing was almost complete I met a doctor who had heard of my much discussed case, and he succeeded in persuading me to let him see the phenomenon. The practitioner was abroad. I evidently could not declare the truth sufficiently strongly, and my faith was apparently very weak. I felt troubled, and fear got the upper hand. The doctor was very much interested, and expressed his desire to help me. I visited him a few times, with the result that the sore, which when first shown to him was the size of a cent, became as big as a dollar. He explained to me that it was a scientific impossibility that the foot could be healed without an operation.
