advanced far enough to let that book alone, then are

we in danger.

MRS. ELLEN P. CLARK, Dorchester, Mass.

Many thanks for the good received from your books.

When I commenced reading them, I was carrying about

a very sick body. Your books have healed me. I am

now in perfect health. People look at me with surprise,

and say they do not understand it; but when they see

the sick ones made well, they are not always willing to

believe it.

MRS. JOSEPH TILLSON, South Hanson, Mass.

Rev. M. B. G. Eddy: — I add one more testimony of

a cure from reading your book, "Science and Health

with Key to the Scriptures." Five years ago I lay pros-

the backache. I have an easy action of the bowels each

morning. It was five days after I resolved to leave medi-

cine alone, before a natural movement took place; and

ever since I have been perfectly regular. It was a great

effort for me to take that step, for I knew I was running

the risk of throwing myself back into all misery, and
