The Lectures

Brooklyn, N. Y. (First Church).—Benjamin R. Thornbury made the following prefatory remarks to a lecture by Judge Samuel W. Greene:—

When St. Paul's Cathedral, in London, was completed, and England sought to erect a suitable monument to the architectural genius of its master builder, Sir Christopher Wren, nothing could be found so adequate to the genius of the man and the magnitude of his work as the tablet, which may be seen to-day in St. Paul's, bearing the simple Latin inscription (translated), "If you seek his monument, look about you." Were the Christian world to-day to attempt the erection of a monument to the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, nothing could so adequately commemorate the spiritual genius of Mary Baker Eddy and the magnitude of her work as the simple inscription, "If you seek her monument, look about you." In this instance it is not upon material structures, though they may be found numerous and stately, but upon the grateful testimony of unnumbered thousands of people who have, through the demonstration of Christian Science, been raised from death unto life.
