Eleven years ago, while working on a building, I stepped on a nail which penetrated through my shoe into the foot. The superintendent on the work insisted upon my going to a doctor to have the wound dressed, but I declined. I continued at work all day, and at night on going to my room I washed the wound clean, and did my mental work as we are taught in Christian Science. Everyone had expressed the thought that blood poisoning would develop; and it did. I kept at my work each day, although the foot and leg had turned black. I wrote to a Christian Science practitioner in another city, telling her of the condition and asking for help. Inside of two weeks from the day of the accident I was perfectly healed. I did not lose one hour from work during this time, and when Wednesday and Sunday came I was able to lace my shoe and go thirty-four miles to the church services. This healing was a mystery to the superintendent and others, but it proved that God is "a very present help" and our only protector.

I am also grateful for the healing of the tobacco habit, after using tobacco for over forty years. This healing took place overnight, with never a return of the desire to use tobacco. I have also been healed of a very quick temper, and of colds, headaches, and corns.
