It is a great and joyous privilege to express my gratitude for all that Christian Science has done for me. When I took up the study a number of years ago I had many ills: catarrh, chronic constipation, rheumatism, nervousness, and an aneurysm, the latter causing many complications. The doctors had given up my case as hopeless; no medicine could give me relief, and an operation would mean instant death as the aneurysm was in the left side below the heart. This caused constant pulsation over the entire body. I also had sick headaches that were almost unbearable.

One evening I heard two persons discussing Christian Science. It seemed that I arose from the depths of despair and hopelessness in a moment, and that I had seen, as the shepherds of old, the star of Bethlehem—the divine idea, Christ, Truth. I was visiting a sister in a near-by city at the time, and I was at the Christian Science Reading Room when it opened the next morning. Never shall I forget how lovingly the librarian met me, and how beautifully she talked about God, telling me that He is Love, Life, Truth, All-in-all; that He "healeth all thy diseases;" and that He does not send suffering and sorrow to His children. I at once asked for help from a practitioner, which was given. After a few treatments I was healed of chronic constipation of years' standing.
