West London Group—On July 26th Mrs. Somerville talked to the members on various spiritual subjects which, with the replies elicited by questions put to the speaker, proved to be instructive.
At the meeting on August 9th Miss J. S. F. Miller gave a lecture on "Religion," in which she drew a distinction between "true and false religion," showing that true religion is a thing of the heart and the life. Miss Miller had to leave the meeting rather early, and the subsequent time was spent in conversation.
North London Group—At the meeting on August 13th, a paper was read by Mr. Rist, which was followed by a discussion.
Birmingham Group—The usual meeting took place on August 9th. Mr. Burton was to have read a paper, but did not arrive, and in his place, Mr. Blizard read a few chapters from The World Beautiful, which was followed by conversation.

More from James Allen
James Allen was a little-known philosophical writer and poet. He is best recognized for his book, As a Man Thinketh. Allen wrote about complex subjects such as faith, destiny, love, patience, and religion but had the unique ability of explaining these subjects clearly and in a way that is easy to understand. He often wrote about cause and effect, sowing and reaping, as well as overcoming sadness, sorrow, and grief. For more information on the life of James Allen, click here.
