I did not come into Science for healing, but when told of it I thought it the most beautiful truth. I have had many healings and much help in every way through Christian Science. One demonstration I should like to mention. Almost two years ago I slipped on a polished floor and came down on my left hand, badly spraining, as I thought, the wrist. Christian Science treatment was at once asked for and lovingly given. My neighbors told me that my age—I was over seventy—was against me, but I clung to the truth that to divine Love all things are possible. My wrist healed splendidly; I had absolutely no material aid. On the ninth day I could use my fingers, and after only two months I could attend to all my duties. About five weeks after the accident my daughter and I spent the day with some friends, a doctor and his wife. At lunch the doctor noticed that my left hand was not quite normal, and inquired the reason. We told him. He felt my wrist and said, "Do you know you have had a fracture?" I did not know it, and said so. After lunch he again examined my wrist, and said: "A fracture undoubtedly; an X-ray would show it distinctly. Why did you not send for me?" I said: "As you know, we are Christian Scientists. Had the practitioner expressed a wish for a doctor's opinion, I would have gone to you." He continued feeling my wrist, and then said: "This I can tell. Had you been in a hospital, and had the best medical treatment, the result could not be better. The fracture of this bone almost invariably results in a stiff joint; yours is quite supple." Oh, how grateful I was for this beautiful testimony of the healing power of Truth! I am very grateful for all the benefits I have received through Christian Science.—(Mrs.)Aletta J. McComb, P. O. Wattles, Transvaal, South Africa.
