More than twenty years ago I asked for my first treatment in Christian Science for what was then called the grippe. For several years previous to that time these attacks had recurred each spring. This time the attack was very much more severe than ever before; in fact, symptoms of something of a far more serious nature were fast developing when I decided to try Christian Science. The result was a speedy and permanent healing, for which I have not ceased to be grateful, because that healing proved to be the open doorway through which I entered a greater and higher sense of my real being as an immortal idea of infinite God, thereby possessing and reflecting dominion over discordant conditions in proportion to my understanding of God and His infinite manifestation.

At that time I was led to call for Christian Science treatment because of having witnessed the healing of heart trouble and the recovery from a paralytic stroke, experienced by members of my own family. Later, when I was suffering from tonsillitis in its worst form, combined with cankered sore throat, a significant lesson was learned through the experience of an instantaneous and permanent healing by absent treatment. I have also experienced healings of diseased eyelids, effects of poison oak, and sick headaches, all of which have proved to be complete and permanent. For these and many other blessings I consider it a privilege to express my gratitude through the periodicals, which have also been a great help to me. I am doubly grateful for the fact that through the earnest study of Christian Science I have learned how to keep well: that I should not wait until physical aliments presents themselves before reaching for higher understanding, but should seek daily for fuller recognition and clearer realization that health is spiritual, a God-bestowed quality, continuous and active.

For the privilege of membership in The Mother Church, as well as in a branch church; for class instruction; for having served in various capacities in church and Sunday school work, I am indeed grateful. I constantly rejoice that the Christian Science monthly, weekly, and daily periodicals are accomplishing so much good throughout the world, spreading the gospel of this healing and regenerating truth, as discovered by our Leader.
