Dr. Cottam, without question, was the shining light in making this program a grand success. Such was the unanimous opinion of those who had the opportunity to come in touch with him. His personality fills a much needed want. We are sorry he did not have the opportunity to speak to all the people of this community. HORACE H. WAY, Enola, Pa. Dr. Cottam gave us wonderfully helpful lectures. Too much cannot be said of the service he rendered here and we are writing at this early date for his return next year. MRS. G. C. YATES, Sec'y. Port Norris, N. J. Nothing but the highest praise came from the people who heard the lectures by Dr. J. A. Cottam. He not only made good in this respect but ingratiated himself into the hearts of the people of this town. C. N. BLANCHARD, Attorney and Counsellor, Wilton, Maine. By unanimous vote we desire to convey our unlimited thanks and appreciation for Dr. Cottam's inspiring and instructive lectures, also for his able manner in conducting the program. Should he be returned next year it will meet with the most gratifying approval of our people. WM. R. BROWN, Sec'y., Wyoming, Del. Dr. Cottam's personality was a big factor in the success of our Chautauqua. The fact that so many people openly expressed their appreciation of his lectures, particularly the one entitled Love, Courtship, Marriage, and the After Effects, shows the impression he made upon his audience. We unanimously request his return next year. E. J. MALONEY, Townsend, Del. The fourth annual visit of the Swarthmore Chautauqua brought us the best program of lectures and entertainments ever. Back of the Chautauqua idea is the spirit of service. Dr. J. A. Cottam exemplified this during his stay with us. His messages were most helpful and instructive. The audience arose enmasse and loudly cheered the Doctor when the resolution was passed that his lectures, alone, were worth the price of the season ticket. His timely messages were filled with pungent truths. He is a humorous philosopher. His radiant smile, jubilant spirit, wit and humor pervades the atmosphere and becomes contagious. His Sunday lecture entitled, 'Religion, Science and Poetry' was acclaimed a masterpiece.—Bangor News, Me. REV. A. I. OLIVER, J. H. HUDSON, Guilford, Me.
