It is with a very deep sense of gratitude and an earnest desire to help others that I with to express my thanks for the great benefit I have received through the study and application of the teachings of Christian Science. I came into Science at an early age, and received many quick healings of various ills, such as influenza, measles, colds, and headaches. These healings were brought about with the kind help of relatives interested in Christian Science, and sometimes with the help of practitioners.

My occupation necessitates my being at sea a great deal. During the past few years, through conscientious study of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and with the help of practitioners when needed, I have experienced many healings, a few of which I should like to mention.

I had an almost instantaneous healing of an attack of yellow jaundice. This came about while reading the textbook, and when I was hundreds of miles from the nearest practitioner. When sailing through the tropics, I was completely freed from severe attacks of constipation. It was many months before the complete demonstration was made, as a strong sense of fear had to be destroyed. In connection with this problem a passage from Science and Health (p. 167), "Only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific healing power be realized," was found very helpful when kept in thought and put into practice. Another quotation from the textbook (p. 283), "Mind is the source of all movement, and there is no intertia to retard or check its perpetual and harmonious action," was memorized, repeated, and pondered often. I have also been instantly healed of the effects of sunstroke by declaring that God is my Life and by knowing how true it is.
