My dear Lieutenant Hall: Permit me, as president of the Municipal Club, to extend to you our expression of gratitude for your admirable eloquent and instructive address on Tuesday evening last. Be assured that your attendance at our function was very gracious and is profoundly appreciated. Your address will long be remembered as one of the most brilliant incidents of our functions. With personal regards, I am, Yours very truly, A. R. Latson, President. January 24, 1924. PROSPECT METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, Bristol, Conn. Lieutenant C. Vincent Hall has courage and grace and power in an unusual degree. He is a Messenger. One instinctively recognizes the Divine Authority of his message. His delivery of the message fascinates. You cannot escape. His word painting holds you. His beautiful and original slides are windows through which the lecturer helps his audience to see the mysteries and marvels of ancient Egypt, Australia and Palestine. Wm. Benj. West, Minister. January 17, 1924. OCEAN AVENUE CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, Brooklyn, N. Y. Dear Lieutenant Hall: Our Men's Club last night enjoyed very much your illustrated lecture Ancient Egypt Unmasked. The Club is already desirous of knowing when you will be available for others of your lectures. There could be no better testimonial, than this desire on the part of a couple of hundred of up-standing American citizens to have you again. Sincerely, Geo. Mahlon Miller, Minister. January 16, 1924. GOODSELL MEMORIAL METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, Brooklyn, N. Y. Lieutenant C. Vincent Hall has a perfect command of the English language. In his lecture on Australia before our Men's Club last night he brought to our minds most graphically, both in picture and story, this benighted race; but best of all, Mr. Hall did not forget to bring in the Christ, the only hope for both savage and civilized. William M. Carr, Minister. January 3, 1924. THE REFORMED CHURCH ON THE HEIGHTS, Brooklyn, N. Y. Dear Lieutenant: Allow me to congratulate you on your splendid lecture on West Australia. The pictures were superb, and as for your own talk, it was most illuminating. I was glad to see such a fine crowd of men in attendance. You have had a rare experience in your travels, and I only wish your travelouge [sictravelogue] could be heard and seen by all the Y. M. C. A.'s in the big towns, and other lecture forums. Your talk is Off the Beaten Track' Wishing you every success in your tour of this country. Sincerely yours, Thomas W. Davidson, Minister. November 11, 1923. YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION, Brooklyn, N. Y. Dear friend Hall: I have read and discussed the aboriginal tribes of Australia on many occasions, but I would like to let you know how much your remarkable lecture contributed to a real visualizing of this people. I do not know when I have heard such an unusual subject matter. Your very intimate details of the habits and thought and customs of the savage people held the attention of myself and all of your hearers. May I congratulate you on your success in holding that large crowd of men in the Foyer, when it was possible for them to slip out at any time. They were so engrossed that they took no note of time. I sincerely hope that you are able to get the material of this lecture before every school and college in this section of the country. Very sincerely yours, W. J. Boyle. November 2, 1923. FREEPORT MEN'S CLUB, Freeport, N. Y. My dear Lieutenant Hall: Our Club President has instructed me to write you and express the appreciation of the membership for your eloquent address on Man's Quest for the Ever Living God given at our monthly Church service last night. You were wonderfully successful in creating for us the atmosphere of the land of the Pharaohs. We lived again, while you were talking, in the glory that was Thebes and Memphis. Your thrilling and illuminating address will live long in the memories of your hearers, and we hope to have the pleasure of hearing you again. On behalf of the Men's Club, I thank you. Cordially, Ernest W. Ault, Secy. October 29, 1923. FIRST METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, Freeport, N. Y. Mr. Frank Goodman, Secretary, Religious Work Department, New York Federation of Churches, 71 West 23rd Street, New York. My dear Mr. Goodman: I want to thank you for sending me Lieutenant C. Vincent Hall who spoke at our Men's Service tonight. He is a man with a message. He spoke to us on Man's Quest for the Living God and I only regret that we could not have heard him for an hour instead of the thirty-five minutes allowed on our program. He knows how to present even Egyptology in a popular way, and his corroboration of Bible History and prophesy from personal investigations in Egypt and Palestine constitutes a message that ought to be heard in all our churches. We hope to have him with us again. Most sincerely yours, W. E. Thompson, Pastor. Note:—Mr. Hall, this is an unsolicited commendation which you may use as you see fit. Frank Goodman. October 28, 1923. FIRST METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, Elmhurst, New York City. It is a pleasure to bear witness to the fine spirit of Lieut. C. Vincent Hall, who spoke to my Men's League a week ago, and who preached at a service conducted under the auspices of the League in my Church last night. Mr. Hall is gifted with a dramatic power in presenting his message, and holds his hearers to the last word. Our men are eager to hear him again whenever his engagements will permit him to come. I may say that I have personally enjoyed meeting Mr. Hall and coming to know something of his rather unique experiences. William D. Beach, Pastor. October 22, 1923. TRINITY MEN'S BIBLE CLASS, Staten Island, N. Y. Lieutenant C. Vincent Hall, a forceful and inspiring orator, made his opening address in the United States to the man of the Trinity Bible Class today. the address was fine, full of strength, religious faith and fervor, and contained the necessary power to inspire new thought. The Class would like to hear another talk from Mr. Hall in the near future. G. A. Grover, Secy. October 14, 1923. TWENTY-THIRD STREET BRANCH, YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION, New York. Lieutenant C. Vincent Hall, world traveler, forceful, informinng [sicinforming]and intensely interesting, gave his lecture on Australia, in the parlor of the Y. M. C. A. His illustrated lecture was not only interesting but very instructive. His presentation of the ideas of the West Australian Blacks as well as the discussion of their manners and customs was very instructive. I am sure everyone present felt as I do about it. Yours very truly, Burt B. Farnsworth, Secy. October 12, 1923.
