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.
