Dr. Peabody's text was taken from the first part of the first and second chapters of St. Paul. Here is represented a well rounded character, sober, righteous and godly. Can such a character be made to barmonize with the present age? There are two ways in which a man can meet the corruption of the outside world. He can surrender and lose his strength of character, or he can flee from the times and become a recluse. Men who flee from the struggle in this way should certainly be respected as martyrs. But they have left the world behind them and with it all chauce of doing good. One should throw himself thoroughly into the times in which he lives. Although he will meet with impurity and corruption yet he will be doing his share to raise mankind to a higher level.

The choir sang the hymn "Old and New" by J. G. Whittier; the anthems "O Praise the Lord" by Weldon (17th century); "I will mention the loving kindness of the Lord" by Sullivan; and "If with all your hearts" by Mendelssohn. Mr. V. O. Johnson of Boston was the soloist.
