For many years I have read the testimonies in the Journal and Sentinel and received much help and encouragement therefrom. In appreciation of this I wish to express my gratitude through one of these channels, hoping that someone will receive as I have received. In childhood I was supposed to be sensitive to mental and physical hurts. If an epidemic presented itself in the school, I always carried the infection home to other members of the family. Sensitiveness was regarded as an asset when, as in my case, it was accompanied by a loving, quiet disposition, obedient to home discipline, and so forth; so I accepted sensitiveness as such, and it grew and thrived. Small wonder that, as the years passed by, pain became almost a daily companion, and a medicine chest a part of the household furnishings.

My first copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy was purchased in 1892, at which time I received some instruction from an older student and healing (without special treatment) of an ailment of several years' standing, proving that "a grain of Christian Science does wonders for mortals, so omnipotent is Truth." Later, I found that, as Mrs. Eddy further says (Science and Health, p. 449), "more of Christian Science must be gained in order to continue in well doing." A few years afterward, this wonderful truth healed me of a physical condition that seemed hopeless, and of a mental condition of despair. I was healed in four treatments; all manifestations of the disease were gone, and there was a complete return to normal physical strength.
