It is a great joy to testify to the unquestionable healing through Christian Science of serious sicknesses, and thus perhaps to instill courage and hope in many people suffering from conditions similar to that from which I have been liberated.

As a young man I had a fall which caused hip disease. An operation was performed, but the difficulty was only alleviated. Once or twice nearly every year this condition, which had developed into tuberculosis, confined me to a sickbed for weeks or months. I can no longer state how often I was operated upon during all those long years, but I spent a relatively high percentage of my time in hospitals and sanatoriums.

Curiously enough, I had never heard of the existence of Christian Science and its significance until about four years ago. When I did hear of it I had again been suffering from this dreadful illness for two months and, when dropsy set in, I was very much discouraged. An acquaintance of mine, who is interested in Christian Science, heard of my desperate situation and sent me some copies of The Herald of Christian Science. I read them, at first with doubt, then with interest, and at length, heartened by the testimonies of healing, with increasing hope. But the way to Christian Science was not made easy for me. Even while I was on the way to the practitioner, who had been recommended to me by my friend, I had a severe attack of liver complaint, which had held me in bondage for several years and had robbed me of much joy in life. I was without hope, but the practitioner understood how to dispel my hopelessness.
