Bicknell Young lectured on Christian Science in Leeds to a crowded audience in the Albert Hall on Tuesday, March 7. Col. W.E. Fell was the chairman. His introductory remarks were as follows:—

The most momentous words that were ever spoken to this or any other generation were those uttered by Jesus when he said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." A sick and sorrowful world replies: "Yes, he said that; but what is truth? Some say, Look here; and others, Look there. And we look, but we are not healed, we are not made free."

Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, "What is truth?" and he answered not a word; but the embodiment of truth stood before Pilate. And why should Jesus answer such a question at such a time, when the whole countryside was ringing with the mighty works that he had done in proof of what truth is. Pilate could have ascertained the truth; but Pilate did not want the truth, he was busy sitting in judgment on the truth. John the Baptist, wiser than Pilate, but with doubt in his heart, sent his disciples to ask Jesus, "Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?" Jesus answered not a word, but in that hour he did many mighty works, and turning to John's disciples he said: "Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raise;" and he added, "Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me,"— in me, the healing Christ.
