I am so profoundly grateful for Christian Science that I wish to avail myself of every means of expressing my gratitude that would be helpful to others.

On several occasions in the past twenty-one years I have received some benefits from Christian Science treatment, but I did not take up earnest study until about ten years ago, and then not for physical healing but because another member of the family had some Christian Science literature in his possession. He had never been religious, so I was extremely happy that he would read anything about God, as in my self-righteousness I felt that he was "lost," and I read to encourage him to read.

One week after I began this study my daughter was healed of kidney weakness, without any Christian Science treatment. I had often said that if I could have one wish granted it would not be for wealth or fame, but that this child might be healed, as the trouble had been a great trial and inconvenience. We had tried many kinds of treatments, an operation, and change of climate, without even temporary relief; so if Christian Science had never done anything else for us I would feel fully compensated for my study of it.
