The Lectures

William D. McCrackan, M.A., who gave a lecture on Christian Science in French, in Washington Palace, 14 rue Magellan, was introduced in French by Prof. Williamson de Vismé of the Château de Soisy. The introduction as translated was as follows:—

In 1866 Mrs. Eddy made a discovery, called Christian Science, which upset the world of thinkers. Convinced that she had found the source of life itself, she had the courage to explain, demonstrate, and teach this Science, insisting patiently and earnestly that "there is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter" (Science and Health, p. 468). It was the dawn of a new era.

If I had been told fifteen years ago that some day I should make remarks in public in favor of Christian Science, I should have replied without hesitation, "Never!" And yet I can say that I was really born the day I understood for the first time that sentence cited above. Today Christian Science is known all over the world. Pamphlets have been translated into several languages; theses and articles have appeared; the press has been hospitable; and all who follow carefully the great intellectual and religious movement have read Mrs. Eddy's book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
