A few weeks ago we only heard of the revival, but now we see it! The first convert was a young man in the Free church congregation. Since then another and another was added to the Lord side – and oh what joy has succeeded that sorrow and they all show such love for each other. Prayer meetings increase, both in number and attendance. There is a little meeting at 5:30 every sabbath evening where the Wynd Journal is read.
More than two months later the work was still deepening and extending.
