He was asked his idea of lecturing and we give below what he wrote us. j ParSetie's Idea of Lecturing. ! I used EO think a lecture was a. lot of words. 1 used to think if I could only get the words pat together right, · get the right position on the" stage,' get control of my diapbram and let the fingers follow the wrist, that woa'.d be a lecture.
