Judge Ewing's Lecture

If any additional evidence of the unflagging interest in Christian Science were needed, it was forthcoming on Tuesday evening. October 8, 1901, at Symphony Hall, Boston, on the occasion of Judge Ewing's lecture. This lecture was held under the auspices of the Mother Church, and certainly, from every point of view, it was a most gratifying success. The great and beautiful hall was filled to the extent of its seating capacity, including the capacious stage. The stage was reserved until a few moments before the lecture began, when the doors leading to it were thrown open and it was quickly filled.

The number present could not have fallen far short of three thousand, and in point of intelligence and evident appreciation of all that was said, the large audience was all that could be desired or hoped for in any public gathering. For almost two hours Judge Ewing held his audience up to a point of interest approaching the highest intensity. In no part of the great chamber, during this time, was there the slightest evidence of uneasiness or lack of interest from beginning to end.
