Dr. Watson at Tremont Temple

Ian Maclaren again lectured in Boston on the afternoon of March 6. The welcome extended to him by his audience was genuine and hearty. Dr. Watson, who was in excellent spirits responded with some introductory remarks in his happiest style, and then gave his listeners a literary treat in the form of a lecture on " The Place of the Minister in Scotch Life."

Dr. Watson said:

I retain a very grateful recollection of the cordial welcome I received on a former occasion in Boston. Since that time various things have happened, and on our side we are very glad to know that your feelings toward England has not grown less cordial during the last two years. (Applause.) It is not necessary that nations which belong to the same family should be forever making protestations of affection ; for, indeed, from our Scotch standpoint, overmuch of a thing is not always a proof of permanent friendship. (Laughter.)
