“What a change has come over Blaina!” Says a Wesleyan local preacher in that place. Not only is the New Hall packed every night almost to suffocation, with those who a short time ago were steeped over head and ears in sin and with those who were once all in rags but are now neatly dressed, standing up telling what the Lord has done for their souls; whilst others are shouting the praises of God and some weeping on account of their sins. If we were inclined to stop our work this cheering news would certainly move us on again. But the salvation stream is never frozen up, nor our workers frozen out. Onward we go to all eternity.
From, 'The War Cry', October 1880.
I do not know where the New Hall was.
