The Lectures

Tallahassee, Fla. (First Church).—Frank Bell, lecturer; introduced by William A. McRae, commissioner of agriculture, who said in part:—

It is a pleasure to be here tonight,—to be with good people, people seeking to know the truth. Herodotus, the father of history, tells us in his first book that the Persians instructed their children only in three things: to wit, to manage animals, especially the horse, which meant self-control; to shoot accurately with the bow and arrow, which meant clear vision and calmness; and to speak the truth, which in fulness meant all that is true and noble and worthy in life.

The dewdrop at night has a star sleeping in its bosom, and the most insignificant passage of Scripture has in it a shining truth. In all ages good people have been searching and crying for the truth. Fifty years ago Mrs. Eddy, from her point of view, saw the truth, and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" had a quiet and modest beginning, just as the Saviour began two thousand years ago; and her interpretation of the Master's work and desire is now influencing for good and bringing peace and joy to multiplying numbers on every continent. I am not a Christian Scientist, but I am a searcher after truth in whatever guise it may be presented.
