I am joyously grateful for Christian Science, which has been a great influence for good during most of my life. When I was twelve years old, my father was afflicted with an ulcerated tooth. The resulting swelling in his throat, which the doctor could not relieve, was so severe that his life was despaired of. In fact, the doctor predicted he could live not over twenty-four hours.

Previous to this time my parents had become acquainted with a Christian Science couple, both of whom were practitioners. As my father lay in the hospital he wrote on a pad of paper (he could no longer speak), "I will try Christian Science." Immediately my mother telephoned one of the practitioners and requested help. No medication was given after Christian Science treatment was begun. The swelling was relieved almost immediately, and my father was released from the hospital in a few days; and in two weeks he was back at the office and lived for many years afterward.
