It is with a deep sense of gratitude that I write this testimony

It is with a deep sense of gratitude that I write this testimony. When first I heard of Christian Science, nine years ago, I was in a pitiable condition, given up by the doctors and without hope. I did not know where to turn, but "man's extremity is God's opportunity" and I was led into the home of neighbors to ask if they could help me. Very lovingly these dear people took me in and told me of Christian Science. They gave me some Christian Science Sentinels to read, and also the address of a practitioner in the nearest city. I went to see this practitioner and treatment was gladly started for me. Never shall I forget the joy that filled my consciousness when I was told that God is Love and does not afflict His children. I was healed of great mental depression, serious defective eyesight, inward goiter, and ulcerated stomach after a few treatments from the practitioner.

I should also like to tell of the healing of our son. He was taken ill with a bad throat, and as he seemed very much distressed and there were some cases of diphtheria about we called the practitioner and absent treatment was given him. As the day wore on he grew worse, and since there was great opposition in our home to what Christian Science was believed to be, we again called the practitioner and the treatment was continued. The thought, "If God be for us, who can be against us?" was a great comfort to me and calmed my fears. Towards evening the boy fell asleep and wakened the next morning perfectly healed. As the result of this healing he was able to lay aside his glasses, after an eye specialist had said his sight was practically ruined.
