From the July 1912 issue of The Christian Science Journal

About four or five years ago I became interested in Christian Science, and since then I have received many blessings. I feel that I owe a debt which can only be paid by living the truth as taught in Science and Health, which is a very precious book to me. I am now over twentysix years of age, and had been troubled with rheumatism since childhood until about seven years ago. It left me a cripple and the physicians said I would be one the rest of my life, which seemed likely until Christian Science found me. I now walk with greater ease than ever before and my healing is being completed daily. After two weeks' treatment I dispensed with my cane and after this was able to walk without any support. My jaws were locked and my neck was stiff; but these have relaxed. It was only with great difficulty that food could be forced into the mouth, but I now eat with the greatest ease. It was always my earnest desire to ride a wheel, but I was never able to do so until Christian Science helped me. One hot day in July, 1910, while riding my wheel I fell off and injured my right wrist. I tried at once to overcome it, but the pain was so severe that I had to ask for help, although I worked all that afternoon. When I went to the practitioner that night my hand was in bad condition, and though I was at her office only about ten minutes I was able to ride my wheel home to supper, which required the use of my hand.

This is only one of the wonderful demonstrations which have been made for me. I have been healed of many physical ills, but the spiritual uplifting is more wonderful than anything else. I was also healed of the smoking habit, for which I am truly grateful. On account of my affliction I was deprived of going to school, and when I asked for Christian Science treatment I could neither read nor write, but now I have a very fair education. I have had comparatively little instruction, but have tried to realize that God is man's intelligence and that He "is no respecter of persons."

It gives me great joy to write this testimony, and if any one who wishes to know more of my healing will write to me, I will gladly answer. I thank God, also all the dear ones who have so earnestly worked for me.—,
