In the Manual of The Mother Church (Art. VIII, Sect. 24) the beloved Leader of the Christian Science movement writes, in reference to the giving of testimony as to the healing of the sick, "More than a mere rehearsal of blessings, it scales the pinnacle of praise and illustrates the demonstration of Christ, 'who healeth all thy diseases' (Psalm 103:3)." I feel such an overwhelming sense of gratitude for all the blessings that Christian Science has brought into my experience, that I would scale this "pinnacle of praise."

Owing to a fever which I had had when a very small girl, I was said to have a badly affected heart and increasingly defective eyesight. After much medical treatment, in 1904 I was pronounced incurably blind. Some years later the name of angina pectoris was affixed to the heart trouble. I loved study, and every effort was made to facilitate my education. After the verdict in 1904 I had to turn to the Braille for reading, and some years later I graduated as a qualified masseuse.
