For many years I searched in vain for a religion or a philosophy capable of furnishing answers to the great questions of life which, at some time in his experience, come to everyone with more or less insistence according to his temperament.

Christian Science is the only religion which has given me completely satisfying answers to these questions, and in addition I have found that faithful study and practical application of its teachings not only remove intellectual doubts and questionings, but destroy discord of every kind. It makes no difference whether these are expressed mentally as unhappiness or physically as disease.

I have had many instances of the power of Christian Science to prevent and remove minor ailments, such as the colds, chills, influenza, rheumatism and lumbago which had come to be regarded as the inevitable incidents of everyday life. During the last twenty years I have never spent a day in bed, nor have I been prevented, through sickness, from doing anything I had to do or from going anywhere I had to go. At times I have been sorely pressed and extremely discouraged; but I rejoice, and say it in grateful humility, that either by myself or with the help of a practitioner I have always managed to pull through. No drugs or medicine of any kind have been resorted to during this period of twenty years, and every physical inharmony has been successfully disposed of by Christian Science treatment, sometimes instantaneously, always without any period of convalescence. After one treatment the cigarette smoking habit, which had become a vice, fell away from me. The desire for smoking was completely destroyed, and has never returned.
