"Christian Science is always the most skilful surgeon," says Mrs. Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 402), "but surgery is the branch of its healing which will be last acknowledged." A healing by means of mental surgery alone was one of the first healings I experienced after taking up the study of Christian Science.

I had been troubled with an internal growth for several months, and serious symptoms were suddenly manifested, confining me to my bed. Those in the home, interested in Christian Science but stricken with fear, wished to call the physician in the early morning hours. But I firmly declared (ibid., p. 231), "What God cannot do, man need not attempt." At my request a relative, a class-taught student, was called by long-distance telephone, and absent treatment was given. The symptoms abated immediately. For three days I persisted in declaring the truth stated by Mrs. Eddy (ibid., p. 207): "There is but one primal cause. Therefore there can be no effect from any other cause, and there can be no reality in aught which does not proceed from this great and only cause." I also recalled the Bible statement, "The word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword," and other statements of truth. On the third day the growth was painlessly removed without an incision of a surgeon's knife and with no loss of blood. Fear was completely eliminated, and I arose immediately, permanently healed.
