The May 1885 issue of The Christian Science JournalThe Christian Science Journal
This monthly periodical was first issued every other month, beginning on April 14, 1883, as the Journal of Christian Science. It became a monthly periodical August 2, 1884, and its name changed to The Christian Science Journal in April 1885.
reported: "The Church of Christ (Scientist) had their meeting Easter Sunday at Hawthorn Rooms, which were crowded one hour before service commenced, and half an hour before the arrival of the pastor, Rev. Mary B. G. Eddy, the tide of men and women was turned from the doors with the information, 'No more standing room.' On each side of the pulpit were beautiful plants and flowers, while a table in front of the speaker was laden with an immense cross composed of roses, calla lilies, etc., towering very nearly to the top of the pulpit. It was with difficulty that the speaker, with the assistance of the genial but muscular usher, Mr. Palmer, could force her way through the crowd, blocking the hallway and aisles, but it was accomplished after a good-natured struggle."
