The subject was 'London and Westminster, Past and Present, ' and formed one of a series of ' Evenings for the People,' arranged by the above place of worship.

An appreciative audience crowded the hall, and frequently manifested its approval by hearty applause. The entire entertainment was kindly provided by Mr. H. J. Stanesby.
