and on Sunday morning I sat down to read it. When
I reached the place where Mrs. Eddy says she found this
truth in the Bible, I began comparing the two books. I
read passages which looked very reasonable to me, and
said to myself, This is nearer to the truth than anything
I have ever seen. I continued to read all day,
stopping only long enough to eat my dinner. As I read
on, everything became clearer to me, and I felt that I
was healed. During the evening a neighbor came in,
and I said, "I am healed, and that book has healed me."
I read on and was certainly healed. Eight days after
my healing I did my own washing. This occurred in
February, 1901. About six weeks after, I was called
to care for my mother, who was under the care of my
former physician. I again let him examine my side,
as he wished to see if the trouble was still there. He
said, "It is certainly gone." I said to him, "Doctor,
you told me I would never be a well woman unless I was
operated upon; what has healed me?" He replied, "God
has healed you." - S. H. L., North Pittston, Me.
GRATEFUL FOR MANY BLESSINGS
It is with sincere gratitude for the many blessings Christian
Science has brought me, that I give this testimony.
I first heard of Christian Science about fifteen years
ago. A friend of mine was taking treatment for physical
troubles, and was reading the textbook of Christian
Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
The title of the book appealed to me very strongly. I
said to my friend, "If that is a Key to the Scriptures,
I must have it."
