"Tuesday, September 19th. I felt my soul much alive to God, and a growing zeal for his glory, and the salvation of precious souls. At night, I spoke at Fishtoft, for the first time. Many people were present, and several were awakened to a sense of their sin and danger.
"Thursday, September 21st. Spoke to several hundred in the Marketplace at Donnington, and tears ran down many of their faces.
"Sunday, September 24th. Spoke at Azlacby, then at Rippingale, and at night at Azlacby again, to a large congregation. The power of the Lord came down; saints rejoiced, and sinners trembled, and some could not rest all mighty the Lord worked so powerfully with them. "Tuesday, September 26th. Some of the Azlacby and Rippingale friends went with me to Hackarby, a dark place. While we were singing and praying, Satan's servants shouted and hallooed; and while I was preaching, they several times attempted to throw me down. When I had done, they swore they would kill me that night; but the Lord protected me, — and though stones came after us like a shower of hail, none of us received any material injury.
