   Dear Madam: - I have been a sickly person all my
life, until a few months ago, and was confined to my
bed every little while.  It was during one of many attacks
that your book, "Science and Health with Key to the
Scriptures," was handed me.  I read it only a very short
time, when I arose, well, went out into the kitchen, prepared
a large dinner, and ate heartily of it.
   I have been up and well ever since, - a marvel to my
friends and family, and sometimes they can hardly believe
it is I; and feeling so grateful, I must tell you of

it.  I wish everybody in the world would read your book,
for all would be benefited by it.
                                        Gratefully yours,      Anna M. Smith

   Dear Madam: - About seven years ago I was compelled
to go to an oculist and have an operation performed
upon my eyes.  He fitted me with glasses, which I wore
for a considerable time, and then removed; but the pain
and difficulty returned, and I was obliged to go again to
the oculist, who advised me never to take my glasses off
   I continued wearing them for fully five years longer,
until some time in last January, when, upon reading your
book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,"
I again took them off.  Since that time, though I have been
in the courts reporting, and reading fine notes frequently,
I have experienced no difficulty with my eyes.
                                        Very respectfully,
                                        William A. Smith, Wilmington, Del.

   Dear Mrs. Eddy: - We have been studying "Science
and Health with Key to the Scriptures" for a year, and
I cannot tell you how much it has done for us; giving us
health instead of sickness, and giving us such an understanding
of God as we never had before.  Christian
Science was our only help two weeks ago, when our baby
was born.  My husband and myself were alone.  I dressed
myself the next day; commenced doing my work the
third day, and am well and strong.  It must be pleasing
to you to know how much good your work is doing.

   I was a helpless sufferer in August, 1883, and had been
so for many years.  The physicians said I had cancer
of the uterus.  I heard of your book, "Science and Health
with Key to the Scriptures," bought a copy, began reading
it, and a great light seemed to break through the
darkness.  I cried aloud in joy, "This is what I have
been hungering for, these many years!"  I studied it
closely, and healed myself and several of my friends before
I had taken instruction of any teacher.
                                        Mrs. S. A. McMahon, Wyandotte, Kans.
