From the April 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The reading of an article in the Sentinel caused me to realize that to withhold my testimony until further demonstrations were made, so that I might have more for which to express gratitude, was, in a way, not being grateful for blessings already received. While participating in a game of basket ball, I fell and rubbed the skin off my knee. I gave the incident no thought until about a week afterward, when I noticed that the knee was not healing properly. So-called blood poisoning then made its appearance and broke through the skin at different places below the knee. When the other leg became affected I applied for help from a local Christian Science practitioner. Decided improvement was noticeable from the first treatment, and with two others complete healing was effected.

While I consider the above my most striking demonstration, I am also grateful for the daily help and protection, as well as for the wonderful possibilities that Christian Science unfolds for us, and that I have been privileged to participate in the great work —
