to me, "Why not try these truths on yourself ?" I did

so, and to my surprise and great joy I found immediate

relief. Dyspepsia (the trouble of most commercial travel-

lers), catarrh, and many lesser beliefs, left me, so that in

a short time I was a well man, and by no other means

than trusting to the Saviour's promises as explained in

Science and Health. This took place while I was travel-

ling about the country.

On my return home, I gave my wife treatments. In

many instances the blessing came before the treatment

was finished, and often we proved that only a thought

of the power of Truth was sufficient to give relief.

One Sunday morning, soon after my return, a friend

called and asked if I could give him anything to relieve

his wife, who, he said, had been suffering for some days

with rheumatism in her shoulder, so severely that she

could neither dress alone nor comb her hair. I told him

that the only medicine we had in the house was Chris-

tian Science. He laughed at the idea; but before he

left, he asked if I would give his wife a treatment. I

told him I was very young in Science, but if she wished

it, I would. He went home, but returned immediately,

saying she wished me to come. Then I asked help from

the fountain of Truth, and started for my first treatment

to be given away from home. When I left their room

fifteen minutes later, she was shaking her hand high

above her head, and exclaiming, "I am all right; I am

well!" That was in November, 1887, and she has had

no return of the belief since.

A friend told me that his son, twelve years old, had

catarrh so badly that his breath was very offensive, his

throat troubled him all the time, and that he had been

deaf since he had the measles. In less than three weeks

both beliefs vanished. This was a case of absent treat-

ment. I could give you other cases, but I think I have

said enough to prove that Science and Health is not

hard to understand, for my work has all been done with-

out my ever attending class.

H. H. B., New York City

A lady, with no other instructor than "Science and

Health with Key to the Scriptures," has demonstrated

beyond many who have taken numerous lessons. Per-

suaded, through her reading, of the allness of God, —
