LINCOLN DAY SERVICE IN THE MOTHER CHURCH
In compliance with a proclamation issued by His Excellency, Curtis Guild, Jr., governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a special service in honor of Lincoln Day was held Wednesday, Feb. 12, at The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and was attended by a congregation of about three thousand. In form it was practically the usual Sunday service, with the addition of the reading of the governor's proclamation by William D. McCrackan, First Reader of The Mother Church, and the address of the day, which was made by Rev. Lewis B. Bates, D.D., pastor of the Meridian Street Methodist Church of East Boston. In introducing Dr. Bates, Mr. McCrackan said—
In accordance with the request contained in the governor's proclamation, read here this morning, we are met to do honor to a great and good man.
Abraham Lincoln believed in liberty, freedom, and emancipation,— and so do Christian Scientists. He believed in union and unity, in God and the Bible, in human rights, and in self-government under divine guidance,—and so do we. It is our privilege to have with us this morning a gentleman widely known and greatly honored in this community, the Rev. Lewis B. Bates, D.D. He is going to help us celebrate this day worthily by speaking to us about Abraham Lincoln. We make him welcome to our church, and thank him in advance for his kindly assistance.
