Bath (1779)



A year ago, there was such an awakening here as never had been from the beginning; and, in consequence of it, a swift and large increase of the society. Just then Mr. M’Nab, quarreling with Mr. Smyth, threw wildfire among the people, and occasioned anger, jealousies, judging each other, backbiting and tale-bearing without end; and, in spite of all the pains which have been taken, the wound is not healed to this day.

From, John Wesley's Journal, 17th July 1780.

Additional Information

Mr Smyth had considerable ministry success in Northern Ireland.
