I was entirely healed.
Seeing this truth in its purity, showed me where to
take my stand; and in defending it I have the prince of
this world to meet. Mortal mind has even called me

One evening I was calling on a neighbor, and some-
how the subject of Christian Science came up. I asked
her what it was, and what they believed.
She then told me of a friend of hers who had become
a Christian Scientist. This friend had passed through
great sorrow and disappointment; her health had failed
her, and her cheerful disposition had entirely changed;
she could talk of nothing but her troubles, and was a
most unhappy woman. A few years ago she visited my
neighbor, who, greatly surprised at her changed appear-
