physicians, but found no permanent relief. I was placed
under an X-ray examination, and was told that the joints
were becoming ossified. I then consulted a celebrated
specialist, who after a thorough examination said my
condition would continue to grow worse and that I would
become completely helpless.
At that time a copy of "Science and Health with Key to
the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy was loaned me. I read it
more from curiosity than with the thought of any physical
benefit. As the truth was unfolded to me, I realized that
the mental condition was what needed correcting, and
that the Spirit of truth which inspired this book was my
physician. My healing is complete, and the liberation in
thought is manifest in a life of active usefulness rather
than the bondage of helpless invalidism and suffering. I
owe to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, gratitude which
words cannot express. Her revelation of the practical
rather than the merely theoretical application of Jesus'
words, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall
make you free," proved to be my redeemer. I did not
even have to apply to a practitioner, but am most grateful
for the helpful words of loving friends. - E. B. B.,

It is nearly five years since I bought my first copy of
Science and Health, the reading of which cured me of
chronic constipation, nervous headache, astigmatism, and
hernia, in less than four months.
Where would I be now, had not this blessed truth been
brought to me by much persuasion of a very dear friend?
