The Lectures

A man six feet tall, of magnificent physique, clear-cut features, and a large head, almost deserted by hair, addressed an audience of nearly three thousand persons at Music Hall Friday evening, February 10. He was Edward A. Kimball, C. S. D., one of the most noted and earnest advocates of Christian Science in America. He came to St. Louis at the solicitation of "First Church of Christ, Scientist." His mission was to tell what Christian Science means. Those who sat attentively for more than an hour listening to his words, left the hall with a much clearer conception of the theme than they had before they went there.

The audience was not only a large one, but it was representative. In it, occupying seats well down the aisles, close to the speaker, were a number of well-to-do and well-known people. They sought to learn the objects of the Christian Science people. They wanted all the information attainable that might lead them to discover a religion that overcomes sickness as well as sin.
