"O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever" (Ps. 107:1). Christian Science came into my life and delivered me from mental illness. I was completely enveloped in darkness. Melancholy, hallucinations, and delusions of persecution had shackled me. Kind neighbors took me to a sanatorium. I lost all interest in life and would not talk and refused all nourishment. Medical aid was of no avail and was discontinued.

Divine Love came to my aid, for friends sent for a Christian Science practitioner, who visited me once a week and prayerfully worked for me. The decision of the county court had been to the effect that I would have to remain in the sanatorium for at least two years. Thanks to Christian Science, I was healed in five months, and the healing has been permanent. At the same time I was healed of various undesirable traits of disposition and faults of character.

I thank our Father-Mother God for this healing, for Mary Baker Eddy, and for the faithful practitioner who helped me.—(Mrs.) Else Heyder, Berlin-Neukölln, Germany.
