That the truth of Christian Science can be proved I have ample evidence. I have been healed of many severe physical difficulties, including a withered and totally useless hand and arm, which are now so nearly normal that they are never noticed. During my junior year at college a lifelong chronic trouble culminated in a severe attack of acute indigestion. The university physicians sent me home with the statement that they did not want me to die on their hands. I am grateful to say that through the help of a Christian Science practitoiner I was back at school three weeks later and was able to pass all my yearly examinations, which occurred within a month. Once or twice this difficulty reappeared, but was overcome very quickly and has not returned for the past ten years.

For the physical healings I am very grateful, but they are of minor importance when compared to the mental and spiritual results of Christian Science. I am most grateful for a sense of peace and security, for adequate supply, and for the means of eliminating all forms of discord from my life—not only the major problems of health and gaining a livelihood, but also the petty bickerings and annoyances encountered in daily contacts with others.

This testimony would be incomplete without an expression of my profound gratitude to Mary Baker Eddy for revealing this Science for all mankind.
