The following testimony is offered as an expression of my gratitude for Christian Science and for our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. In my early years as a student of Christian Science, I was spending a vacation at a cottage with one of our daughters. One day she manifested cold and fever. Previous to my study of Christian Science, a child of ours had passed on with this difficulty; so my fear was great.

I had no telephone; so I could not reach a Christian Science practitioner or my family. I felt very much alone, and my fear increased. Throughout the afternoon and evening, I read the Bible and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy and endeavored to apply the truth. One citation from the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly stood out (Ps. 51:10—12): "Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit."

I clung to this prayer, and at about midnight I found the child bathed in perspiration, and by morning she was eompletely free. I was truly grateful.
