"Mr. F— , have you not got one bit of pain?" I was

rewarded by hearing him answer, "No, sir; not the least

bit." No one else seemed to have any hope for him; but

I held firmly to the thought that God is an ever-present

help, never doubting, and Christian Science has again

won a victory. Many people call it a miracle, and it

has set them to thinking.

The harvest is now ripe and ready for the reaper. I

wish some good Christian Science teacher would come

and help us. I can help in my own way, but am not

advanced enough to lead and teach others. I have only

nothing about either; yet I wanted to know, and took

It was a revelation to me. Although I could only under-

stand it in part, I knew it was the truth, and the truth

was making me free. I felt that I had been bound and

in prison; and that now, one after another, the bonds

were being broken, and I was lifted into the pure air

and light of heaven. I was healed before I had read

half-way through the precious volume; for I was obliged

to read slowly, and some passages over and over again.

When I came to page 304, line 10 (47th edition), I then

and there felt that I must add my testimony, though

already there were "heaps upon heaps;" but since then,

I have tried to put the thought of those dark days away
