The Lectures

There was a very large and deeply interested audience at the Malden Auditorium last evening (Tuesday, April 23), when Rev. Irving C. Tomlinson, C.S.B., of Concord, N, H., deliverd a lecture on the subject, "Christian Science, the Christianity of Christ," under the auspices of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of this city.

Before eight o'clock, the time of the opening of the lecture, the seats on the lower floor and first balcony of the beautiful theatre were all filled, and as the curtain rose Mr. Arthur H. Pope, First Reader of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of this city, introduced ex-Representative Harvey L. Boutwell, who had accepted the invitation to preside over the meeting. He stepped forward and in a few opening remarks, he declared that the sincerity and earnestness of the believers in Christian Science had almost persuaded him to believe. He then introduced Rev. Mr. Tomlinson, who was received with marked applause.

The lecturer spoke in a very easy and pleasing way Every one seemed to listen most attentively throughout his interesting treatment of his subject, and it was evident that he had given many in the audience some thoughts for consideration. Among the gathering were noticed many of the most prominent ladies and gentlemen of our city. Even though one did not fully agree with the speaker, one could not but feel drawn towards him by his frank manner and kindly way of addressing all who held a different view.
