"Two evenings ago we held a watch-night at Chidsill and had an excellent time. It lasted for five hours. Four persons were very earnestly groaning and crying for mercy for a long time. Two or three of them were so deeply convinced that they trembled like a leaf in the wind. At last three of them obtained mercy and went home rejoicing in the Lord. Another dropped down on the floor and many were deeply wounded."
Two weeks later. "At Chidsill this evening we had an awful time with the people. Three were under strong connvictions of sin... We had reason to believe that three of those under conviction found peace."

29th Mar - "The whole of the services were in the open air, a lantern supplying the absence of the sun and the moon. It was a very solemn time indeed and attended with a general blessing. Some hundreds of people were present and four I am told found peace with God."
12th April - "At Chidsill we again prolonged our worship with a very large crowd in the open air. Some were deeply distressed and a few were set at liberty."
