I wish to express my gratitude for the many blessings and healings Christian Science has brought to me. I did not take up its study for healing, although my first one came through reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

The specialist said I had a throat and nose condition which could not be healed, but could only be relieved through treatment when it became aggravated. By the time I had read Science and Health through, in two weeks' time, I had my healing. Through the same study I was also healed of constipation of long standing. These healings occurred about twenty-seven years ago and have been permanent. There have been a number of other healings, such as of sick headaches, sprained ankles, colds, and tonsillitis. Deafness in my left ear and carbuncles on my neck were healed through the work of practitioners.

The back of my left hand was severely burned when boiling oil spilled on it. The pain was intense. My first thought was to wrap the hand up, which I did; and then I went ahead with my cooking. Next the thought came, There are no accidents in divine Mind, nor is there any sensation in matter; and last (Science and Health, p. 393), "Have no fear that matter can ache, swell, and be inflamed as the result of a law of any kind, when it is self-evident that matter can have no pain nor inflammation." As each of these angel thoughts presented itself, I applied it to the case. In five minutes I had no sense of pain or burn, and there was no swelling or inflammation. In less than a week one could not tell that my hand had been burned, for no scars were left.
