The Lectures

Having learned, a few weeks ago, that Mr. Kimball was to pass through Guthrie on his lecture tour through the south and west, our church unanimously voted to ask him to give us a date. The following Sunday, after service, blank slips of paper were passed through the audience, with the request that each one write the amount he or she desired to give toward the lecture fund. Eighty-two dollars and sixty-five cents was subscribed on that day. Later, other subscriptions were received, making an amount sufficient to defray all expenses and leave about nine dollars in the treasury. All subscriptions and money were given without solicitation.

As a result of this demonstration an intelligent and appreciative audience had the opportunity to hear Mr. Kimball on the evening of April 3 in First Church of Christ, Scientist. Visiting Scientists were present from Stillwater, El Reno, Oklahoma City, Hennessey, Perry, Mulhall, Perkins, Ripley, and Cushing.
