THE LINCOLN DAY SERVICES

It is gratifying to know that the Lincoln Day services awakened great interest and were largely attended throughout the country. The attendance at The Mother Church, approximating four thousand, filled the body of the house and generously overflowed into the first galleries. The entire service, including the impressive address by Samuel J. Elder, LL.D., which was published in full in the Monitor, was followed with rapt attention. In introducing the speaker Judge Smith, the First Reader, said,—

"The Christian Science movement is a crusade against slavery. It is a crusade against every from of mental bondage. Christian Scientists seek for themselves and for all mankind the liberty of the children of God. Therefore they delight to honor a President under whose guidance an important step was taken toward freedom. This service in honor of Abraham Lincoln will include an address by a distinguished citizen whom the members of this church will recognize as a friend."
