Judges of the US Supreme Court et al. in District of Columbia - late 19th Century

from My Life and Sacred Songs, pages 169-170:

One of my last lectures on " Sacred Song and Story " was delivered before a large audience in the Church of the Covenant, in Washington, D.C., at which the late Secretary of State, John Hay, members of Congress, and Judges of the Supreme Court were present. The favourite hymn, "Nearer, my God, to Thee," was sung very heartily by the congregation.
