The fall of 1833 found me with my mother's family and others, camped within the borders of Texas, of which we had just become citizens. Texas was then a wilderness, inhabited by roaming, hostile Indians.
I was a refugee in 1836, fleeing from home before the army of Santa Anna. Of the pioneers who enlisted under the flag of the Lone Star to battle for freedom, I am one of the few now living to testify to former conditions. After seventy years sojourn in my adopted state, I became again a refugee, fleeing from a merciless foe—ill health—to the standard of Christian Science to battle for right against wrong, for truth against error, for God and His demonstrated power.
Only a few years since, Mrs. Eddy startled the world with this new philosophy, this new Science of God, infinite Mind, an ever-present help to those who seek aright, and I am proud to say that I am again a pioneer and have demonstrated this fact of God's healing presence to my entire satisfaction.
My husband being a physician, I naturally had all confidence in medicine. It gradually failed me, however, and I became a physical wreck. I suffered intensely for a year with muscular rheumatism and other ills. Life was a burden and I was hopeless.
Meantime this new star of Christian Science had appeared, leading all who were willing to a haven of rest. I was healed through the ministry of a Christian Science practitioner, and my heart is filled with gratitude to her and to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, and most of all to the ever-present God, who "healeth our diseases" and reveals to us the Christ-truth.
I am a member of Second Church of Christ, Scientist, of Houston, Tex., the only church with which I have affiliated in fifty years.
I write this testimony hoping that some forlorn and shipwrecked brother, seeing it, may take heart again.
MRS. ANSON JONES, Houston, Tex.
