Words are inadequate to express the gratitude I feel for...

Words are inadequate to express the gratitude I feel for a beautiful demonstration we have had.

Our son was brought home from a Rugby football match with a broken wrist. My husband and I were not at home at the time, but my sister and daughter telephoned to a Christian Science practitioner who lovingly started treatment at once. As the boy was under age, my sister sent for a doctor, and on seeing the boy the doctor said that it was a bad fracture (a collis fracture), and would have to be X-rayed, and that a bone specialist should be consulted else the boy would have a stiff and deformed wrist for life. Having had so many proofs of the truth as taught in Christian Science, for nearly twenty years, we had no fear of anything being wrong, and we told the doctor so; but he insisted, and said the responsibility was his. He made arrangements with the specialist who had the wrist X-rayed, but when he saw the result he was puzzled, as the plate showed no fracture. He then asked the boy to call again the next day, so that the wrist could be X-rayed with the bandage off and the X-ray specialist consulted. After this was done they came to the conclusion that it was a dislocation; although the doctor who first saw the wrist still declares that it was a bad fracture.

We who understand the truth know what had happened: the Christ had been uplifted through the correct application of the truth as taught in Christian Science. Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 332), "Christ is the true idea voicing good, the divine message from God to men speaking to the human consciousness." The child did not lose a single day from school. In fact, he attended Sunday school the next morning.
