The accounts from Merionethshire alone would fill a volume ; but without specifying any particulars respecting Dolgelly, Barmouth, Dyffryn, Llandrillo, Corwen, Towyn, and many other places, the whole may be summed up in the words of the Rev. Robert Williams of Aberdovey, in the annual address to the Calvinistic Methodist Churches in this county :
"Now let me mention a word respecting the revival, its value, and peculiar advantages. It has pleased the Lord during' the past year to grant us great things. We are glad that the visitation has been so general in our county. There is scarcely a locality, from Towyn to Gwyddelwern, that has not received, to some extent, the heavenly dew. We find that the addition to the churches of our own denomination is more than FOUR THOUSAND. We venture to say that the last year was an acceptable year of the Lord.' In almost every part of our country the hand of God has been stretched out to save those who appeared very far off. To some, like the daughter of Jairus, and the son of the widow of Nain, and Lazarus, it has been a resurrection: resurrection power has made their graves empty forever."
From ‘The Welsh Revival’ by Thomas Phillips.
We have had some very gracious manifestation of the Lord's favour in the beginning of this year. The hearts of God's professing people in this place being much warmed. Amongst the young particularly as there is much joy of salvation, the term used in the old times of Cambrian revivals for the excited praise, often attended with jumping which distinguish the Ernest ministrations of Rowland's, Harris, Charles, Elias, Christmas Evans and others.
