The Wednesday Evening Meeting

Mechanics Hall was crowded to its full capacity at the Wednesday evening meeting under the auspices of the Mother Church, June 18. The meeting was opened by Judge Hanna who, after speaking of the series of wonderfully interesting and helpful meetings beginning with the Communion services, and giving words of welcome and appreciation to the visiting Scientists for the interest manifested in attending these meetings,—some of them coming across the continent for that purpose,—referred, as among important events which had transpired, to the change in the Readership of the Mother Church. He said in part:

"I know that I express the real sentiment of every loyal heart present when I say that the successors to the Readership will have, throughout their entire term of service, the hearty, loyal, and loving support of every Christian Scientist.

"It may not be amiss for me to say that in laying down the sacred trust reposed in me several years since, I do so with a heart filled with thankfulness and gratitude that I should ever have been deemed worthy of it."
