I had suffered for years from stomach trouble accompanied by intense pain. About three years ago while in London with a friend, I had a severe attack. As I was staying in a home where Christian Science is not accepted, a doctor was called. He diagnosed the case as heart trouble and cancer of the stomach, and he was doubtful as to whether I would live until the morning. I was in a state of collapse, but my friend took me to my home, a distance of about one hundred and thirty-five miles.

Help in Christian Science from a practitioner was immediately sought. Consciousness was regained in a short time after the treatment was begun, and I was able to take food. In about three weeks I was healed and on duty again, feeling that I was indeed "about my Father's business" (Luke 2:49). I have learned that God is my Life and that nothing mortal mind may either say or think to the contrary is true. Because I actually live in Mind as a perfect idea, I dwell in His presence.

Our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, says in Science and Health (p. 3): "Gratitude is much more than a verbal expression of thanks. Action expresses more gratitude than speech." My desire is to prove this in daily watchfulness. —(Miss) Sarah E. Sutcliffe, Ripley, Derbyshire, England.
