"Friday, March 14th. I gave thanks for the revivals that are in progress all around. At Wedmore an infidel recanted his creed, and burnt his books; at Axbridge, the day-school teacher had to stop his lesson to let the children pray: at Hanham thieves and harlots have been saved. Wonders of grace have been done in Midsomer-Norton, Banwell, and Abergavenny, and Blaina.
