Capt. Theodore John Deans, Committee on Publication for County Antrim, Ireland,
In reply to "Truth's" letter in a recent issue, I would point out that it is material sense which testifies to the seeming reality of sin, disease, and death, and that such conditions cannot on that account be regarded as any part of God's creation.
A night there was, When, doubting and severe, My weary thoughts contained in discontent Escaped In a thin cry; And, like the Psalmist, I trod softly midst the stars and questioned, Where is the place of inspiration, Where is its fountainhead?
I give my experience with a heart full of love and gratitude to God, to our dearly beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, and to a loving teacher and kind and patient practitioner who have helped me many times to understand and obey the law of God, the religion of divine Love—Christian Science.
Such is my gratitude for release from the bondage of self-will that I should like to relate something which occurred more than ten years ago, in the hope that others similarly situated may be helped by the telling.
The benefits which I have received from the study and application of Christian Science have been numerous, but this is the first time that I have availed myself of the opportunity to express my gratitude in the form of a written testimony.
