Finally I looked up and said, "I'll try it." "Very well," said my sister, "of course, you know that you must throw away the eye medicine." That came to me as a severe blow, but after a long, wistful look at what I deemed to be my only material hope, I did as she requested. "Now," said she, "you must call up a practitioner." Listlessly I obeyed her; and as I turned away from the telephone the great change came! As light floods the room when the electric switch is turned on, so my troubles fled from my consciousness. I did not look at my eyes again that day, but my healing came at half past nine in the morning, and at two o'clock in the afternoon friends told me that there was no sign of inflammation about the eyes. In the meantime I had donned a uniform and marched several miles in a parade, reading music and playing as usual. The parade ended in a large park, and soon the same specialist who had examined my eyes accosted me; as he did so he whistled softly and muttered under his breath, "I had no reason to expect that medicine would work so quickly!"
That was the first of several healings in Christian Science for which I wish to express heartfelt gratitude . . .
