In the parish of St Ninians the number of awakened will be considerable. The first remarkable appearance of this good work there was at the giving of the Holy Supper upon the first of this current August. The Monday was one of the greatest days of the Mediator's power I have hitherto seen. By a letter from Mr Mackie, the minister of that parish, I am informed that the number of the awakened was increased upon the Thursday thereafter when they had the sermon.
