Possibly
the charging of admission, as well as
the waning of Bryan's popularity, and
the storm, may have had something
to do with the attendance.

the front of the tabernacle was but
sparsely occupied, while about 1,200
persons sat in the back sections to
which the lowest price of admission
was charged.
