Because I have received so much benefit from reading...

Because I have received so much benefit from reading the testimonies in the Journal and the Sentinel I offer my testimony in the hope that others may be helped by it. In 1916 I was discharged from one of the leading hospitals in New York city as incurable with splanchnoptosis, falling of the intestines. For months previous to entering the hospital I had been on a liquid diet, and after leaving the hospital the drinking of a glass of water or milk caused great pain and discomfort. While walking along the avenue one day I met my old Sunday school teacher from Scotland, and after talking with him for some time he told me about Christian Science.

Shortly after that I bought a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and started to read it. From then on, improvement was noticeable; life to me took on a new aspect, and the sense of peace that came was beyond all belief. One night my wife and I went to see a practitioner, and in her patient, loving way she showed us the road from matter to Spirit. I forgot all about the intestinal trouble, and was eating any kind of food before I realized that I was healed.
