It is with a true sense of gratitude, as well as a sense of duty, and also a desire that someone may be benefited thereby, that I give the following testimony.

One morning a few years ago, as I started to walk out of the house, my ankles gave way, and I had to be helped back into the house. Immediately my legs began to pain. As the pain increased, I grew steadily worse, and in less than a week I was entirely helpless.

I was in a small town in Wyoming. All that the doctors there could do for me was to give me morphine to deaden the pain. Arrangements were made to send me to a hospital in Denver, where my case could be handled by specialists. The doctors and nurses at the hospital were very kind, and did everything they knew how to do to help me. The doctors tried day after day to find the cause of my trouble, but could not. I could not get any rest or sleep without taking morphine. After many weeks of treatment and the development of a serious morphine habit, I was still in bed, so helpless that I could not even feed myself, and if I wanted to move I had to be lifted.
