It has been my privilege to experience and prove the healing and regenerating power of Christian Science and its practical availability in human affairs.

Christian Science was first brought to my notice in the year 1932. I had been ailing for some time, had had much medical advice and treatment, and finally, after X-ray examinations, I was pronounced a consumptive and ordered to a special instituion for rest and open air. My medical advisers warned me to be prepared to remain there for three months and possibly six months if my condition did not improve. At this juncture the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, was handed to me, and I took it wit me into the sanatorium. The first few pages which I read removed at once a terrible sense of affliction and hopelessness, and a new hope sprang up in me. Within six weeks of reading the textbook and other works by Mrs. Eddy a remarkable change had taken place in my physical condition. I was then put in touch with a practitioner and absent treatment was given for one week. At the end of this period not only was my healing complete, but I was pronounced cured by the medical staff of the sanatorium and was sent home. I had had no medical treatment of any kind during the whole of this period, but had merely been under observation and taking a rest.

Before I could return to my work, however, I was required to pass an examination by my employers' physician. In this instance I was afforded a wonderful proof of the power of Christian Science to heal severe organic disease. The physician subjected me to every known test, including X-ray examination and blood test, and he did not hesitate to express his surprise at the wonderful healing which had taken place in so short a time. Since then I have continuously enjoyed good health and have been able to lead an active life without any fear.
