I should like to express my gratitude for a healing I had which was brought about by my own study and the help of a Christian Science practitioner.

Several years ago I became interested in Science through a friend whose wife is a Christian Scientist. At this time I had lost nearly a whole year's work because of illness, and much money had been spent on medical and hospital bills. My condition had become worse and had developed into a nervous breakdown. The friend recommended that I try Christian Science. At first I refused, but later I bought a copy of the King James Version of the Bible and of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I also asked for the help of a practitioner.

Although it seemed as if I did not make any physical progress right away, my spiritual understanding was improving all the time, I know. This was proved one night when, after I had retired, I was stricken with a severe pain in the back. I asked my wife to hand me Science and Health, and it opened to page 393 where Mrs. Eddy writes: "Be firm in your understanding that the divine Mind governs, and that in Science man reflects God's government. 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."
