"I was obliged to preach this morning at Oldham-street. The congregation was really awful. Perhaps I never preached as I did this morning. Mary, I had the kingdom of God opened to me, and the glory of the Lord filled the whole place. Toward the conclusion the cries were great. It was with great difficulty that I could get the people persuaded to leave the chapel. Though the press was immense, yet scarcely one seemed willing to go away, and those who were in distress were unable to go. Some of the preachers went and prayed with them, nor rested until they were healed. God has done a mighty work."
