I feel it a duty and a privilege to express my gratitude to Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and our Leader, for what Christian Science has done and is doing for me.

Since childhood I had never known what it was to be free from some ailment, and after intense suffering for over sixteen years from what the doctors called bronchial asthma, weak lungs, and generally weakened condition, being under treatment by specialists for many months with only temporary relief, Christian Science was brought to my attention; but I was reluctant to turn to it for help, not understanding that "with God all things are possible."

About that time my mother came to visit me, and we decided to attend a Wednesday evening testimony meeting at The Mother Church. There we heard two testimonies of healing of a trouble from which my mother was then suffering, which the doctors called lumbago and an acute form of rheumatism. She had been dependent upon some member of the family to put on and take off her shoes and stockings morning and night for several weeks. These testimonies gave her hope and courage, and on returning to her home she asked for treatment from a Christian Science practitioner, and was entirely healed in three weeks.
