Locharbriggs (1861)

At the protracted meeting for inquiry last night from 100 to 150 were present in the Reformed Presbyterian Church; upwards of 200 in the Independent Church; and the females in the Free Church were fully as numerous as on any former occasion. One case is reported to us as having occurred in the Reformed Presbyterian Church of peculiar interest, that of a man from the country who had been in a state of great distress, a prey to doubts and misconception, but who was at length, after a torturing ordeal of a fortnight's duration, enabled to place his trust in the Redeemer, and find in Him peace and rest. In the course of the proceedings in the Independent Church, Mr Machray made the gratifying announcement that at the small village of Locharbriggs, in the neighbourhood, a crowed revival meeting had been held that evening, and about 70 anxious inquirers remained to be conversed with—results which, he said, were in answer to prayers offered up for the people of the village at the meeting which had been held in that church during the day.
