Friday, 24th July.
The evangelists paid a visit to Forres today and held three meetings in the Agricultural Hall. In the town the day was generally observed as a holiday, and large numbers flocked from the surrounding country districts, At the first two meetings, held at noon and 3 P.M., there were between 2,000 and 3,000 present. On both these occasions, as well as at the meeting held in
the evening, Mr Moody spoke for about an hour in his usual impressive and earnest manner. Several hymns were sung at intervals, Mr Sankey leading. On the platform, along with the evangelists, were a number of clergymen and laymen belonging to the district.
