Street, where a lecture was delivered by the Rev. Dr. Lorimer – subject: ‘Voltaire, the apostle

of modern infidelity in France’ – showing his incapability of judging the Christian religion; at

the close of which the President, in name of the society, thanked the Rev. Doctor for his

interesting and instructive lecture. It was then intimated that the society would meet during

the session on Friday evenings in the same place.”
