We have a most blessed work going on in the Mearns here. It is just Ireland set down at our own door. Conversions counted by tens and twenties at Laurencekirk, Fordoun, Mary-kirk, and now I hear of it going on to Bervie. Meetings at Laurencekirk nightly, many souls in deep distress under conviction of sin, and many already enjoying peace. It first began in its public manifestation at some of the open-air services of our dear brother Johnston. Souls struck down by the arrow of conviction, and the wounded healed by the balm of Gilead. —Extract from a Letter.

I do not know where these meetings were held, but they were probably in the free church.
