When our daughter was a young girl, she began to have attacks of quinsy in the winter. Her father, not interested in Christian Science, insisted on having a doctor for her. The third time this occurred, the child asked to have help in Christian Science, and with my husband's agreement I called a practitioner.

At first the trouble did not yield, and the appearances were alarming. My husband did not want me to leave the child, so he went one evening to telephone the practitioner. There were only two telephones in our town then. When he returned he said: "I told the practitioner that if the child is not better by morning, I shall call a doctor. He said that it was my privilege to do so but that there would be a change in her condition."

That night I spent grateful hours reading the Bible, together with Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. Finally I went to bed and slept soundly. In the morning the child was noticeably improved and was able to eat food for the first time in three days. Her complete recovery soon followed, and this condition has never appeared again.
