My gratitude to Mrs. Eddy for...

My gratitude to Mrs. Eddy for Christian Science and for the Christian Science movement overflows—not alone for what I have received but for the good it is bringing to all mankind.

I became interested in Science in 1919. Since that time many blessings have come to me. One was the healing of mastoiditis. It was necessary for me to have an examination by a physician, because of the rules at the place where I was employed. He called in a specialist, who advised an immediate operation. My request was that this be delayed for a few days; whereupon I was told that unless the operation were performed at once my life would not last thirty days, as there was streptococcic infection. After talking to the practitioner who was helping me, I decided to continue Christian Science treatment without medical or surgical aid. Three months passed, during which time I did not work, but I was wonderfully sustained and cheered by the help of the practitioner and my study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. About this time I went to another city for a visit with a friend who is a consecrated practitioner. She took up the work for me.

As we talked together, on the evening of my arrival, my friend said to me: "You cannot express corruption, for you are the reflection of God, good. Mind, God, is not corrupt and knows only good. God is 'of purer eyes than to behold evil.' " That night I slept through until morning, for the first time in three months. The next day was Sunday. We attended church, had a pleasant day, and I left for my home. Then I realized that I could hear the grinding of the wheels on the rails of the track. I had been completely healed: every symptom had gone, and my hearing was restored. May I add that the specialist who had made the diagnosis later saw the ear and said that my eardrum was a new one. He asked how this had come about, and said that when he was summoned my life was not worth two cents. After being informed that Christian Science had healed me, he said, "Don't let anything or anyone take such a religion or faith from you." This healing has been permanent and complete; and I can say now, as the Apostle Paul declared, "The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."
