More than thirty years ago I picked up a Christian Science periodical, and while I was reading it acute pain from which I was suffering vanished. I was much impressed, but through the careless speaking of one who professed to be a student, I was put off from making further inquiry.

However, some years afterwards I bought a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and read it in a desultory way. After my marriage I turned more to Science and was wonderfully helped through many difficulties, especially with the little ones, who responded as plants to rain. A child's cough, declared by the doctor to be an obstinate one, ceased at once through the kind help of a student of Christian Science. Space does not allow me to tell of all the help and comfort that Christian Science has been to me. I now begin to understand how much our dear Leader has done to help mankind to find God.

I cannot close without mentioning some of the outstanding healings I have had. Eleven years ago a doctor diagnosed a condition as an internal growth. By my continually denying it, the illusion vanished in a few months. At another time I allowed dark thoughts to gather until another phase of illusion came, which the doctor pronounced as incurable Bright's disease. After loving help from a practitioner, at the end of the month I was declared cured by the doctor, although the illusion of pain had not yet left me. However, in a short time that also was overcome. We read in Science and Health (p. 380), "Truth is always the victor;" but we must persevere to the end.
