From the August 1906 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I should like to add my testimony to that of the many happy and grateful ones who have been helped by Christian Science. For ten years I had been constantly doctoring for Bright's disease, liver complaint, lung trouble, and other ailments too numerous to mention. I had quite a number of doctors attending me, in fact, used every remedy suggested, but all with the same result; viz., I was growing worse right along. I had reached the point where I had given up all hope, and had made up my mind that the end was near. About this time I heard of a lady who had been healed through Christian Science. I knew that she had been a great sufferer, and I hardly dared believe that Christian Science had healed her, nevertheless I went to see her, and to my great surprise I found that she was perfectly well, and I became anxious to receive help in the way she did. She told me all about her healing, and when I was about to leave she said. "If you try Christian Science and it does not heal you as quickly as you would like to be healed, do not become discouraged, but hold to the truth and God will heal you." I went to see a practitioner, and commenced taking treatments.

Words cannot express how happy I was to think that I could be well once more. The healing seemed somewhat slow, but whenever I felt the least discouraged, I remembered the words of my friend. After having over forty treatments, and holding to the truth, I was perfectly healed. Prior to taking Christian Science treatment, I was to have an operation performed as a last resort, but I refused, and turned to Science, with the results above stated. I had also been wearing glasses for five years, and these were laid aside. I can never be grateful enough for all the help received. My husband also was healed of a rupture of eighteen years' standing, which had been pronounced incurable by physicians. I wish to add that my husband, children, and myself have received many blessings through Christian Science, for which we thank God with all our hearts. We also wish to thank Mrs. Eddy for her wonderful work, and for Science and Health, which reveals to us God and His word in the true light.
