I want to express gratitude for the many blessings that have come to me since I turned to Christian Science. Formerly, I was melancholy from physical suffering, and discouraged with doctors and medicine, which brought no relief. A friend, who had been healed through Christian Science, after a long experience in a hospital, suggested that I try it. The first treatment was an absent one, when I was suffering from acute indigestion, and I shall never forget the relief and peace it brought. Since that time I have had many healings, of tonsillitis, colds, neuritis, an attack of appendicitis which was met in two hours, and numerous other physical ailments.

When I was very young in the understanding of Christian Science I met with an accident, being thrown from a motor cycle which was going at a high rate of speed. I was taken to the home of relatives in the nearest town and a physician was called. The doctor said that I had a bad dislocation of the hip and would be fortunate if I stood on my feet in three months. This was not very encouraging, and while I did not know what Christian Science could do in a case like this, I decided to try it anyway. A practitioner was called and work was begun. This was on a Sunday, and on Thursday of the same week I was able to get out of bed; on the Sunday following I went riding in an automobile, and on Monday returned by train to my home, over a hundred miles away. At the end of a month I was completely healed of all the bruises and of lameness in the back which had lasted about two weeks, and which many friends said I should always be likely to have, especially in cold weather. This was in 1914, and there have been no ill effects since that time resulting from the fall.
