‘December 2nd, 1832
My Dear Mair...
I expect, my dear, shortly to have the pleasure of giving you an account of a glorious revival in Mold. The church, to my mind, is showing every sign of this. Our elders have awoken, and the members appear to be more awake than I have seen for some time. Perhaps you have heard of the revival in Cilcain, about four miles from us. There twenty people have newly joined the church. I know that this news will bring joy to your heart. Please pray, my dear Mair, (and ask your father to pray as well) for the church in Mold, that we will not be left without an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, through our many sins loudly call for this judgment, that is, to be left to ourselves. Indeed my dear, I fear that there is much chaff amongst us. O! that the Lord would come and purge us.’ (Thomas Jones, Fy Chwaer: Sef Cofiant am Miss Margaret Jones, Cefn y Gader, Wyddgrug., 2nd Ed., Wyddgrug, 1854, p.75)
