The Lectures

Caldwell, N. J. (Essex County Penitentiary, auspices Orange).—Rev. Andrew J. Graham, lecturer; introduced by Warden Hosp, who said in part:—

Two years ago the Christian Science committee first came to this institution and appealed to the Board of Freeholders for the privilege of coming here to hold services. I well remember the meeting held by the five gentlemen who were to decide this question and how they voted: three of them to allow the Christian Scientists to hold services and two not to allow them. There was no reason for the two voting against it, but I was pleased to know that in a short time they were just as unanimous as the other three men in their thought and in their feeling of welcoming the Christian Scientists to this institution. In these two years the Christian Scientists have been coming here regularly every Sunday, and they have endeavored to show the inmates of this institution the value of kindness, sweetness of character, uprightness, honesty, and truth; and the people who have been coming here in that time have been of that character and of that type. We also desire to express to the Christian Scientists a feeling of deep gratitude for the kindness shown in sending us from time to time speakers of prominence.
