Mtt. KniTOii Why Is It that the Hoard
ofKdiii'ntlon have not resumed the course
of lectures which wen-given under their
auspice, last winter? My tinder-land-ingwas
(and I think It I- the tinder-tand-lug
of a great many more), that they were
simply discontinued during the summer
month, to Ik! resumed as soon a cool
weather should approach. If 'iich i the
caw they should certainly commence an
other course for the winter, as they are
n great source of enjoyment and prollt to
he public. We have still a gnat deal of
home talent yet unexhausted, and I doubt
not but that some of the gentlemen who
delivered lectures l,it tear could be in
duced to again npiie.ir before the public.
I think that If the subject Is agitated a
little the Hoard would do something In the
matter. While nu the subject of lectures,
I would like to know if Hev. Mr. Tliayer
could not lie Induced to reieat his lecture
on Splrititall-mat an curly day? I know
of a great many who were unable to hear
him who would join tne In asking him to
