"I called this morning, by request, to pray with a sick woman at a public-house in Shaycross, who had been no friend to religion. Presently, several of the neighbours were gathered into the house. While I was at prayer, violent convictions hit the sick woman, which communicated to others who were present. They cried earnestly for mercy and with many tears. I continued in prayer until two of them were set at liberty. This was indeed a solemn and awful hour."
