Forty years ago, that is, in 1893, at the World's Columbian Exposition held in Chicago, a notable meeting of Christian Scientists and a recognition of the religion founded by Mrs. Eddy took place. The authorities of the World's Congress Auxiliary connected with the exposition assigned to the Christian Science church the privilege of holding a preliminary convention, and also of presenting to the World's Parliament of Religions an address setting forth the doctrines of Christian Science. Christian Scientists everywhere were invited to attend, and a group of Mrs. Eddy's students and other church members from Boston traveled to Chicago in a special chartered car. The porter of this car seemed unable to overcome his surprise because none of the men or women in his car used tobacco or liquor.
As is recorded in the November, 1893, Christian Science Journal, the meeting was held September 20 in Washington Hall in the Palace of Arts Building, which had a seating capacity of three thousand and with standing room was capable of accommodating another thousand. The hall was filled to overflowing, and hundreds were turned away for want of room. The Journal records that this meeting "marks a most important epoch in the history and progress of our Cause."
