Over twenty years ago I wished to take out an insurance policy, but could not be accepted as a first class risk, and had to pay an extra premium. When the policy became payable, I wished to take out another, and applied to the same company. In the meantime I had become interested in Christian Science, and on being examined by the doctor for the second policy, I was told that I had taken great care of myself, as no trace of the former trouble could be found, and that therefore they would accept me in the first class. It was then that the words of Mrs. Eddy on page 383 of our textbook came to me, "The Christian Scientist takes the best care of his body when he leaves it most out of his thought."

For this and many other blessings which I have received through the teachings of Christian Science, I am very grateful.—John Sykes, Leeds, Yorkshire, England.
