make us "every whit whole."
L. M. C., Brooklyn, N. Y.
I have been thinking for a long time that I would give
my experience in coming out of sickness into the knowl-
edge of health by reading "Science and Health with Key
to the Scriptures."
I was sixty years old (as we mortals count time) be-
fore I ever read one word of Christian Science. On July
2, 1890, I met a Scientist who gave me a pamphlet called
"Christian Healing," by the Rev. Mary B. G. Eddy.
At that time I was almost helpless. This lady advised
me to buy Science and Health. I did so, and tried to
read it; but my hands were so lame I could not hold it,
and I let it fall to the floor so often that it became un-
bound, and I laid it away and resumed my medicine.
The following May, the Scientist visited in this city
again. She advised me to burn all my medicines and to
lean unreservedly on the promises of God. I took her
advice; had my book rebound in three volumes, so I
could hold it more easily, and now read it constantly,
reading nothing else. Sometimes I would suffer intensely,
then I would get a little better; then more suffering, and
so on, until August, 1891, when all pain left me. I have
had no return of it, and no disagreeable sensations of any
kind, and am perfectly well in all respects.
Surely, if we will but trust our heavenly Father, He is
sufficient for us. I hope some one of, or near, my age,
who is afflicted, may read this and take courage; for I
have demonstrated the fact that, by reading Science and
Health, in connection with the Bible, and trying to follow
the teaching therein, one in the autumn of life may be
made over new. I am so thankful to God for my great
That remark of Sojourner Truth helps me to a better
understanding of Life in God: "God is the great house
that holds all His children; we dwell in Him as the fishes
dwell in the seas." — P. T. P.
Until about one year ago, I had no thought of investi-
gating Christian Science. Previous to that time it had
been presented to me in such a way that I condemned it
as unreasonable and absurd. At that time it was pre-
sented to me in a more reasonable light. I determined
to divest myself of prejudice (as far as was possible)
and investigate it, thinking that if there was anything
