Pulmonary Difficulties Healed

From The Healer, by David Keyston, page 49

In the first edition of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mrs. Eddy, there appear several healings performed by this loving woman. One such is the healing of James Ingham, of East Stoughton, Mass., in 1867.

I was suffering from pulmonary difficulties, pains in the chest, a hard and unremitting cough, hectic fever, and all those fearful symptoms that made my case alarming. When I first saw Mrs. Glover (Mary Baker Eddy), I was reduced to such a state of debility as to be unable to walk any distance, or to sit up but a portion of the day; to walk up stairs gave me great suffering for breath.

I had no appetite, and seemed surely going down the victim of consumption. I had not received her attention but a short time, when my bad symptoms disappeared, and I regained health. During this time, I rode out in storms to visit her, and found the damp weather had no effect on me. From my personal experience I am led to believe the science by which she not only heals the sick, but explains the way to keep well, is deserving the earnest attention of the community; her cures are not the result of medicine, mediumship, or mesmerism, but the application of a Principle that she understands.
