"Let the redeemed of the Lord say so." I wish to express my gratitude for Christian Science and to recount some of the healings which have taken place in my family.

On one occasion when I was young in Science, my husband and I went fishing. He left me and went a mile farther up the creek, where he was bitten on the foot by a copperhead moccasin, which supposedly is as poisonous as a rattlesnake. He was not a Scientist, but had often listened to the reading of the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly. When the bite occurred he was seized with fear; then came the thought that it could not hurt him. He returned to where I was, and I knew that God was with us and no evil could be in His presence. We were sixty miles from a hospital and ninety miles from a practitioner. He first mentioned the hospital, and I agreed to go wherever he wanted to go. We hurried home and prepared to leave as quickly as possible, our destination still undecided. Finally he came in and asked what I wanted to do. Of course I wanted Christian Science treatment, and he agreed to have it. It was late in the afternoon, and when we reached the first telegraph station it was closed for the supper hour. We had traveled fifty miles before we were able to wire the practitioner. During this time both of us were free from fear. He knew when the practitioner began her work, for he had been in pain, but in a short time he broke out in sweat and told me he was free.

When we reached the home of the practitioner he wanted to tell her how it occurred. She told him not to talk about it, because it had never really happened. She said, "If a ray of sunlight were pouring through the window onto the floor, and dozens of serpents were striking it, they could never harm the ray of light, and man is as incorporeal as a ray of light." We did not discuss it further, and it was as if it never happened. In working for him she held to this truth (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 514): "Understanding the control which Love held over all, Daniel felt safe in the lions' den, and Paul proved the viper to be harmless. All of God's creatures, moving in the harmony of Science, are harmless, useful, indestructible."
