A Wednesday Evening Meeting

Extracts from the Boston Journal's Account of an Important One in the Mother Church, June 21.

The regular weekly meeting of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, was held in the church edifice at the corner of Norway and Falmouth Streets, last night, and during the course of the evening a number of ancient myths in regard to Christian Science and Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy were very effectually handled by Judge S. J. Hanna, the First Reader of the Church and editor of the Christian Science Journal and Sentinel.

The report that Mrs. Eddy is dead, and has been for years, recently published in a Chicago paper, was summarily dealt with, and there was evidence to show that the statement of the Rev. Charles A. Crane of East Boston, that within three years Mrs. Eddy had taken the decoctions of a clairvoyant physician lacked verification. The church was crowded to its utmost capacity, although no announcement had been made that the exercises were to be different from the usual experience meetings.
