stone. I held to what I could understand of Science and
Health; and the truth does not forsake me, but enables
me to heal others.
Last February, I was called to treat a child that the
M. D.'s said was dying from lung fever; after the third
treatment the child got up and ran about, completely
healed. Another child was brought to me, with rupture;
after the second treatment the truss was thrown away.
An aged lady was healed of heart disease and chills, in
one treatment. These cases brought me many more, that
were also healed.
The husband of a lady in the State Lunatic Asylum
asked me to treat her; she had been for two years and

once or twice, she had had to be taken back. After two
weeks of absent treatment, the husband visited her, and
the doctor reported great improvement during the pre-
ceding two weeks. At the end of another two weeks I
went with the husband to the asylum, and the doctor told
us that she was well enough to go home. The husband
asked the doctor how it was that she had improved so
rapidly, and he said that he could not account for it. We
said nothing about the Christian Science treatment, and
took the lady home. This was about a year ago, and she
has remained perfectly well.
Many cases as striking as this can be referred to in
this town, as evidence that Truth is the healer of sickness
as well as of sin. — J. B. H.

She was more than astonished at the result; for in less
than an hour all pain and other symptoms of the trouble
ceased, and she felt perfectly well the next day.
No. 2. While she was visiting relatives in the country,
an infant of theirs was attacked severely with croup,
and appeared to be on the verge of suffocation, giving
its parents much alarm. The infant was taken in
the arms of the lady, in thirty minutes was completely
relieved, went to sleep, and awoke in good health the
No. 3. The mother of this child was subsequently
attacked with a scrofulous swelling on the neck, just
under the ear, which was very painful and disfiguring;
