The New Readers

The long period and the highly satisfactory nature of the service rendered the Mother Church by its Readers, Judge Septimus J. Hanna and Mrs. Eldora O. Gragg, has given them a large and abiding place in the tender affection of all the people. They have been the channel of an inspiring ministry, and the good they have done will flow on forever.

To succeed them is to accept a sacred trust which could not have been committed to more worthy hands than those of Prof. Hermann S. Hering and Mrs. Ella E. Williams. They have been tried and not found wanting; and the peculiar fitness of their selection appears to all. For many years Mrs. Williams has been identified with the work in Chelsea, and her faithfulness and efficiency has given her high rank as a leader and practitioner. Mr. Hering brings to his office the dignity and repose of a liberal culture, and the gentleness and consecration of a great true heart.
