Letters & Conversations


From the April 1890 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Christian Science was introduced into Milwaukee in the spring of 1884. The fall of that year there was incorporated an Institute and formed an Association. The former, known as the Wisconsin Metaphysical Institute, holds monthly meetings for attendance of its members; while Friday evenings are open to the public.

In the spring of 1885, two public lectures were given which helped to make Christian Science more widely known; while some caught an idea of its beauty and power, others, not yet ready for the Truth, were displeased at the strong statements made.

The following winter another public lecture was given in the parlors of one of the Congregational churches. Outside of the Friday evening meetings already mentioned, these were the only public lectures on Science held in Milwaukee until the spring of '87, when, upon invitation the pastor of the First Church of Christ (Scientist), Chicago, gave a lecture in the parlors of the Unitarian Church. This lecture aroused an interest in many who had not looked into Christian Science before, while proving an occasion for open antagonism to those who came simply to criticize.
