I wish to express my gratitude to God and to dear Mrs. Eddy for all that the study and application of Christian Science has done for me and mine. Her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," was lent us by a stranger. It had been in the house some weeks when I went into my room one day sick and weary of what the world seemed to offer. By the side of my chair was a stool which always held the latest novels and current magazines, but this evening all it held was this book. I picked it up with scorn, and said to myself, "I will just see what this says." As I opened the book my eyes fell on these words (p. 503): "Divine Science, the Word of God, saith to the darkness upon the face of error, 'God is All-in-all,' and the light of ever-present Love illumines the universe." After I had read these words over and over, the light dawned that God is not corporeal, but that He is Spirit. I felt a great stir over my body and found that I was healed of a supposedly incurable disease which had caused me much suffering for over two years. I was also healed of traits of character which I had acquired from taking a drug to lessen pain.

I did not take up the study of Christian Science until six months after this, when my mother became very ill and I asked a practitioner for help for her, and to straighten out a very inharmonious condition in the home. My mother was too ill to study, and I began to read the Bible together with Science and Health and Mrs. Eddy's other writings. As I read, my thought was cleared of many wrong beliefs; and my many physical difficulties began to disappear at this time. I was healed of stomach trouble in its worst form, also of insomnia, catarrh of the nose, hives, freckles, colds in the head that often lasted months, and a disease which I had had since a very young girl and which materia medica and change of climate had not reached.
