"The first seizure I had took place while I was in church one Sunday evening. I had a very bad attack, as 1 was in an unconscious state of mind until the following morning; in fact, my friends thought I would pass, away without coming to again. After I regained consciousness, I was in quite a dazed condition. The dazed feeling kept up for some time. I then consulted a doctor in Toowoomba, and he prescribed for me. I took his treatment regularly, but the fits recurred daily. Some days I had as many as six fits or seizures. I consulted the doctor six or seven times altogether, and after a while the attacks left me for some time, only to, unfortunately, return. At this time I was strongly recommended to consult you about my case, which I did the next time you came to Toowoomba, and after you examined me, you informed me that f had epilepsy or fits, and that you could cure me permanently. I therefore decided to undergo your treatment, and as a result have received a complete cure and genuine restoration to health. Only recently I have gone through some trying mental experiences, and yet have remained quite well. I trust this statement may be the means of making other sufferers as thankful as I am, for it is truly a wonderful blessing to be cured of such an affliction.
    (Signed) ARTHUR RICHARD ASKIN.
    Sworn before me, at Toowoomba, Q., this 15th November. 1904.
