The body of the Church was crowded with standing and kneeling worshippers. There Are no seats in the russian churches. Doctor Honan s badge As a Delegate cleared a path for us so we were Able to make our Way up to the very alter. The chanting of the male voices unaccompanied by organs was . The Temple is built of White Stone and has the five Golden cupolas characteristic of the russian Church. The principal Portier is supported by massive Marble columns and Granite Steps Lead to the Entrance. The edifice holds 7,000 people and wag erected at a Cost of almost ten millions of dollars. At night the Church is lighted with rows of which follow the Cornice even in the dome. The painting s Are by the artists of the russian school.

The magnificence of its Interior beggars description a such extents of Marble Halls such a lavish of wealth As will hardly be found out of Russia. The floors of inlaid Wood Are works of Art. Quite near the Palace stands the Cathedral of the Assumption in which the czars Are crowned. We reached there before the service was Over.

St. Petersburg is a Lovely City we both had Good seats. In the evening a grand banquet and entertainment was Given to the members of the Congress at the Arcade or Bazaar. It is an immense building three Story with shops and passages forming a labyrinth. The Interior was Beautiful with electric lights Flowers Bunting Etc. Long tables extended through the passageways on the first floor. Here was spread an a Legart banquet for the thousands of guests present. In the first and second balconies were Small tables from which fruit drinks and Light refreshments were served. At each intersection of the passageways was a platform on which a musical entertainment was Given. These entertainments were going on in different pans of the House quot at the same time so everybody could hear and see. There were Gypsy choruses a chorus of russian men Oue of russian women Sontus and dances by the Graceful Lite people of Little Russia. It was All very novel and of a purely russian nature. I he banquet was wonderful to be. Everyone ate As much As Long and often As he chose. Wine flowed like water. When we stepped out to take our Carriage at one o cock we found the streets and walks crowded with the poor men women and children Many of them laying asleep leaving just room for the carriages to pass. It was a pitiful contrast within the fountains were playing there was Light music feasting and mirth without darkness poverty fatigue and hunger. The next morning prof. Cotton and or. Honan went to the Congress while mrs. Cotton and i went to the reception rooms of the ladies committee where we joined a party going to the Kremlin. Every morning the ladies who were alone met in these rooms where the trips were arranged and interpreters ready to accompany them. It was very Nice As most of the husbands were in the Congress and most of the ladies were timid about going out alone. Mrs. Cotton and i soon deserted the party for we preferred not being hurried and found we could gel Almonti better alone. We spent the entire Day at the Kremlin visiting the tre sur the monasteries climbing to the Summit of the Tower of Ivan Etc. The next Day mrs. Cotton and i Well occupied our time in sight seeing and were joined by our husbands at the picture gallery at one o clock in the evening we drove out several Miles to a Park where a Garden party was Given. I cannot give you the particulars of every Day. Oue Day we that is the Cottons and lion ans were guests of i a local application As they cannot reach a professor of the Moscow University.

A quote were glad they so decided As they were such pleasant agreeable company. We went by rail to Hel Kingfors Finland where we spent sunday.
