My gratitude is unbounded for the numerous healings and blessings which have been mine over a period of many years through the ministrations of God's law, Christian Science.
When this Science presented itself to my thought a number of years ago I was living in Europe, and I knew nothing whatever of it. However, as I earnestly prayed for an understanding of God, the words "Christian Science" came to my thought over and over again. But because I had been imbued from childhood with the teachings of an orthodox religion and had heard denunciations of Christian Science from the pulpit, I still clung to my early religious beliefs and continued attending the only church I knew, vainly hoping to gain the peace and understanding I so eagerly sought.
At a period when I was struggling with pernicious anemia and an internal goiter, neither of which had yielded to the persistent use of medication and the best efforts of medical specialists over a period of years, I turned fervently to prayer. But even as I realized that I was beyond human help, I found to my despair that faithful adherence to my religious beliefs availed nothing. That moment was one of deepest anguish and blackest desolation.
