Blackburn Baptist Church (1861)

DEAR SIR.—On visiting the North of England, among other places, I went to Blackburn, where I preached every night last week, excepting Saturday, and three times on the Lord's-day to crowded congregations, and have had a very awakening time there. On Friday evening last the meeting was held in a Baptist Chapel, and a large number of those pre­sent were crying for mercy, both male and female; it was heart-melting to see such a number of sinners seeking salvation through the blood of Jesus. We had many last night who found peace. I preach to-night in the Methodist Chapel, where we expect a blessing. I know that my friends in England will be glad to hear of the work in Blackburn, therefore, I give you a little account of it. I have a great deal to write only I am short of time. I am yours in Christ, DAVID CRESWELL.
