decided to try Christian Science, and I was healed by
reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"
by Mrs. Eddy.
My health has been of the best since I was healed, now
six years ago. In the family we have depended entirely
on Christian Science for our healing, and have ever found
it efficacious. We consider the physical healing, however,

to live the lives that will prove our gratitude to God, and
to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy. - Charles E. Peck,

and not able to drive out for nearly six months. During
this time I had three good doctors treating me. I gained

fifteen years I suffered so severely at times that I thought
life was not really worth living. In connection with these
