Science and Health
with Key to The Scriptures

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 grate-
ful 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?
I certainly should have been deep in the slough of despond,
if not in the grave. Am I truly thankful for all the good
that has come to me and mine? I try to let my works
testify of that; but to those whom I do not meet in person,
I can truly say, Yes; I am indeed more thankful than
words can express for the glorious healing that has come
to me, both physical, mental, and moral, and I also con-
vey herein, my song of gratitude to the dear Leader who
has through her fidelity to Truth enabled me to touch
at least the hem of Christ's garment. – B. S. J., Sioux
City, Iowa.
It was about fifteen years ago that Christian Science
first came to my notice. At that time I had been a chronic
invalid for a good many years. I had acute bowel
trouble, bronchitis, and a number of other troubles. One
physician had told me that my lungs were like wet paper,
ready to tear at any time, and I was filled with fear, as
my mother, two brothers, and a sister had been vic-
tims of consumption. I tried many physicians and
every material remedy that promised help, but no help
came until I found a copy of Mrs. Eddy's book, Sci-
ence and Health. The book was placed in my hands
by one who did not then appreciate it, and I was told
that it would be hard for me to understand it. I com-
menced reading it with this thought, but I caught beau-
tiful glimpses of Truth, which took away my fear and
healed me of all those diseases, and they have never
