In "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscelany," on page 164, Mrs. Eddy states, "What is gratitude but a powerful camera obscura, a thing focusing light where love, memory, and all within the human heart is present to manifest light." I should feel very ungrateful indeed if I did not use this means to express gratitude for the benefits received through the application of Christian Science.

Christian Science was presented to me at a time when I was very despondent. All my life I had suffered from physical ailments, one of which was ulcerated stomach. The doctors told me I should never be well, and that it would always be necessary for me to adhere to a very rigid diet. After taking up the study of Christian Science, I realized that God did not know anything about an ulcerated stomach, and this fact freed me from the fear of food. I began to eat anything I wanted, and was entirely healed in a very short time.
