and ready to help me, and I trust in Him; my faith is
planted on a rock that is immovable.
Yours truly, FRANK S. EBERHART
P. S. If you think this letter, or any part of it, will help
some one out of darkness into the light of Truth, you
are at liberty to have it published.
Having so many occupations and interruptions, I have
not found time to read "Science and Health with Key to
the Scriptures" sufficiently, but will not on that account
delay thanking you for its excellence.
HENRY W. LONGFELLOW, Cambridge, Mass.
I am an old-school practitioner; have served as surgeon
in two European wars; practised medicine for about
ten years in New York city and Brooklyn, until my health
compelled me to relinquish my profession. I became
a victim of the morphia habit, taking daily thirty grains
of that drug. My physicians declared me consumptive,
and abandoned all hopes of recovery. Shortly after
this I made the acquaintance of a student of the author
of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,"
who presented me with her works; and as drugs did me
no good, I stopped taking any whatever, save morphia,
without which I thought it impossible to get along, and
to my astonishment began to gain in flesh, and my am-
bition returning in proportion. I finally felt that I would
stop my loathsome habit of morphia-eating, and did so
in one week, without any discomfort worth mentioning.
For a test I administered one fourth of a grain of morphia
to the aforesaid Scientist, hypodermically, without the
slightest physiological effect, clearly proving the existence
of metaphysical laws. I have read Science and Health
carefully, and consider my present improved health solely
due to mental influence.
OTTO ANDERSON, M. D., Cincinnati, Ohio
The profound truths which you announce, sustained
by facts of the immortal life, give to your work the seal
of inspiration — reaffirm in modern phrase the Christian
revelations. In times like these, so sunk in sensualism,
I hail with joy your voice, speaking an assured word for
God and immortality, and my joy is heightened that these
words are of woman's divinings.
A. BRONSON ALCOTT, Concord, Mass.
I was sick six years; tried many physicians and reme-
dies, but received no lasting benefit from any of them,
and concluded I must remain sick the rest of my life.
