The Lectures

The circuit court chambers of the county court-house were crowded to capacity when Bliss Knapp delivered an eloquent and inspiring lecture on "Christian Science: The Revelation of Divine Power." Francis V. Galloway presided, and in introducing the speaker he said in part:—

I am not a Christian Scientist, and probably there are many in this audience who are not Christian Scientists, so I feel like speaking a word for myself and for them in saying that we all hope and expect to be reasonable persons, broad-minded and tolerant citizens, and when a distinguished visitor comes to us with a message or words of enlightenment concerning some great movement, we owe it to ourselves to give him a thoughtful and attentive hearing. I have noticed that the speaker of this evening has not been heralded to us as an evangelist or propagandist, but as a lecturer,—one who expounds and explains that which to many of us would otherwise be an unopened book.
