Science and Health, I learned that God was able to save
the body as well as the soul, and I believed His promises
were for me.

   For the Cause of Truth, I submit the following testimonial
for publication; may it bring one more, at least,
into the fold of divine Science!  The truth, as it is stated
in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,"
has done much towards making our home the abidingplace
of peace and harmony.  I now write of the wonderful
demonstration of Truth over the birth of my baby
boy, two weeks ago.  Sunday, September 23, we went
for a long drive of three hours; at night I retired at the
usual hour; toward morning I was given a little warning;
when I awoke at seven o'clock, the birth took place.
Not more than ten minutes after, I ate a hearty breakfast,
and then had a refreshing sleep; at ten o'clock
walked across the room while my bed was dressed; at

twelve took a substantial dinner; most of the afternoon
sat up in bed, without any support but Truth; at six
in the evening dressed myself and walked to the dining-room,
and remained up for two hours.  Next morning
I arose at the usual hour, and have kept it up ever since,
- was not confined to my bed one whole day.  The
second day was out walking in the yard, and the third
day went for a drive in the morning and received callers
in the afternoon.  If it had not been for the presence of
my young hopeful, it would have been hard to believe
that there had so recently been a belief of a birth in the
house; but then, I was sustained by Love, and had no
belief of suffering to take my strength away.  Before
baby was two weeks old, I cooked, swept, ran the sewing
machine, etc., assisting with the housework
generally.  How grateful I am for the obstetrics of this
grand Science!  Mothers need no longer listen to the
whispering lies of the old serpent, for the law of mortal
mind is broken by Truth.

   My wife and I have been healed by reading your book,
"Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."  We
both feel very grateful to you.
   Five months ago my wife gave birth to a child, without
pain or inconvenience, has done all the housework
since, and has been every minute perfectly well.  Neither
she nor the child have been ill, - as was constantly the
case with former children, - so we have thought it right
to name the child Glover Eddy.
   We have been reading Science and Health nearly

two years, and have sold several copies to others.  We
are reading the Journal also this year.
   Yours respectfully,  John B. Housel, Lincoln, Neb.

   Dear Mother: - The most blessed of women!  Oh,
how I long to sit within range of your voice and hear the
truth that comes to you from on high! for none could
speak such wondrous thoughts as have come from your
pen, except it be the Spirit that speaketh in you.
   Two years ago last October, while laboring under a
great strain of care and anxiety in regard to financial
affairs, I heard of Christian Science.  I borrowed "Science
and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and began
