The Lectures

Rev. William P. McKenzie, C.S.B., a member of the Board of Lectureship appointed by The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, gave an address in the Academy of Music last evening (Tuesday, May 28) on "Christian Science, the Panacea for the World's Unrest." A large and appreciative audience was present, which comfortably filled the Academy. The lecturer was introduced by Rev. G. C. Cressy, D.D., of the Unitarian Church, who said in part:—

"When I was asked yesterday to preside at the gathering this evening. I canvassed the situation mentally to determine the grounds for the request; and I concluded that they were probably these: First, because I am not a Christian Scientist, and second, because I am entirely willing that others should be such if they wish. The attitude of many even in this day of comparative toleration toward views new, contrary to tradition, or even simply out of accord in any way with their own ideas, is illustrated by the incident of the landlord in the suburbs of Boston, incredible as it may seem, who gave as a disadvantage of location to the visiting applicant the fact that the nearest neighbor was heretical in his religious views.
