Rev. Edward Abbott, D. D., rector of Saint James' Church, North Cambridge, addressed the Saint Paul's Society last evening. He said that people never seem to realize how easily they might obtain good advice when they have knotty questions to decide in business life or in study. They are apt, if the difficulty is very great, either to give it up entirely or else to make a guess at the solution and usually guess wrongly. People don't as a rule understand that there is One above earthly perplexities who is, nevertheless, able to end perplexity as no one else can.
After the address the members of the society were requested to remain and hear a communication which the secretary had received. This was that a Bible class would probably be started, to meet at the room in Grays every Sunday afternoon, and the names of the members who wished to join were called for. The attendance at the regular meetings has, of late, been so slight, that an attempt will probably be made to arouse a little more enthusiasm by having regular visits made to the sailors in the harbor, or by doing work elsewhere in the city; but the quickest way of increasing the attendance would be to have each member who is in the habit of coming to meetings, bring someone with him each time.
