Thanks to the study of our textbook I have been able to grasp the divine possibilities to which Christ Jesus referred when he said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Through this new understanding I have had many demonstrations of healing, both physical and mental. Today I wish to express gratitude through our periodicals for a healing which I had some time ago.

One evening—it was in winter and there was a glaze of ice—I fell in the street and sprained an ankle. The pain was so intense that I fainted and had to be carried home. The lady who was with me was a relative, a doctor of medicine. She put me to bed and diagnosed the case as more serious than had been thought. She predicted that I would not be able to walk for many weeks, and said that massage was needed and special treatment. Thanks to Christian Science, I could refuse to believe that these predictions might be fulfilled. I knew that spiritual truth and God's love are with me and govern me, and that consequently no error has power to separate me from ever active and ever present good. After two weeks I could get up, put my foot to the ground, and walk without a cane. When my husband went to tell this news to my relative, the doctor, she said that it was impossible, that I could not possibly stand on the injured foot without support. But she came the same evening to see if what my husband had said was true. When she saw me up and walking around without any difficulty, she said it was a miracle, for ordinarily such a case as mine took six weeks to get well.

I should also like to express gratitude for a demonstration that we had in the sale of our fruits. In the fall of 1931 we had a plentiful crop of grapes, apples, and pears. We were hoping to export the fruit, as had been done the preceding year. But at the last moment we were not able to do so because the conditions for export were unfavorable. There was a moment of discouragement because the wholesale market within the country and the low prices allowed no compensation for our work. Then the thought came to me that all is governed by divine Principle, God. We then started to sell from our house. Though it seemed impossible at first to retail at home such a great store of fruit, since we lacked organization for such a business, yet the thing was done quite harmoniously little by little. The people in the house were at once ready to assist us, and there was so much willingness and love that every difficulty disappeared. During the four months of the sale we had daily proofs of divine protection, and it was found possible to sell everything in its season without any waste; the buyers were well served and all were satisfied. Not only did we realize receipts above those which seemed possible at first, but our fruits also became known here and in the interior of the country. Following this we had more orders than we could fill. This result was a new proof to us that "in my Father's house are many mansions."
