David Morgan's Chapel (1857-1883)




A correspondent from Yspytty says:—" We are about to make another attack on the ungodly world, and resolve in the strength of the Lord to persevere and to conquer until there shall not be within our district a single ungodly person. We hope to see the day when Holiness unto the Lord' shall be written over the public-houses, instead of the Lion,' the Bear,' &c., /ix. They have already been the target for our arrows. They arc nearly empty from morning until evening, and the landlords are beginning to complain. One of them remarked lately in conversation, ‘This revival occasions me a great loss.' Oh,' said another, this will soon pass away.' What will that avail,' was the reply, ‘when I now lose twelve pounds every month.' A land­lady once went to the Rev. D. Morgan to ask why he had warned the people against coming to her house since she had a regular licence from the Government. She was, however, soon silenced, and even brought to acknowledge that the traffic in drink was to come to an end."
