Cleveland (O.) Leader
The seeds of Christian Science, sown in the stoniest of places in the [English] metropolis, have fructified and invaded the aristocratic West End. The religious skepticism often associated with the wealthy classes has been overcome by the creed set forth by Mrs. Eddy, and it is among the leaders of society that this faith has made its most substantial progress on this side of the Atlantic. Society has taken to Christian Science, not because of the arguments launched in its favor but because it has seen with its own eyes the cure of people actually known to it, by the efficacy of faith and prayer.
Moreover, there are those in perfect health who, hearing of cure after cure, have been so astounded that they have flocked to the Wednesday evening public services in the Portman rooms, or Aeolian Hall, and seen for themselves. As a result, they have enrolled themselves.
Christian Science came to us ten years ago, when ten or a dozen persons met together in a little flat near Baker Street, in the heart of the West End residence land. Slowly the movement progressed, necessitating removals to larger quarters, until at last the members of the aristocratic and wealthy classes were aroused. An old synagogue in Bryanston Street was remodeled into a Christian Science church, and until recently this has been the center of the faith in London. So crowded became the congregations that the aisles and staircases were blocked, and no another move has been made to Wilbraham Street, Sloane Square, the present headquarters. So rapid has been the growth, however, that another church has been added, making three in the city, and additions are being made to the Wilbraham Street so, that it will accommodate sixteen hundred people.
