Cullen (1871)

" FINDOCHTY, 26th June, 1871.


I received your note this morning with great pleasure. May God bless your visit to this place, and that not only to your own soul, but also to all the dear brothers and sisters in Peterhead. The Lord can work without any of us, but it is the way He has promised, and that we have to look to, and that is through human agency, and to Him be all the glory.

"Dear brother, the work is still widening —Portessie is subdued almost to a man. There is a good work going on in Buckie and in Cullen, also, there was a call from Portknockie last night, and the P— with some of his crew went over and had a good beginning. We had a demonstration on Saturday, when all the people of God went over to Portsoy in marching order, singing as we went the praises of God.

"When we arrived there we halted for a short time, then all the Portessie people came up in the rear, and marched on to, and through Buckie. It had a powerful effect on that place. Many were seen weeping as we passed through. Such a multitude, and all converted, you never saw ! none could join but those who have the witness within.

"We had a glorious day on Sunday. The chapel was crowded. Only one hour's interval the whole day, and such testimonies given of the grace of God, you never heard. Glory be the name of the Lord for ever and ever.

I have been out at sea for two days and nights, but singing and prayer was the most of the work that was done. The young men you saw on the platform were my crew, so you may judge.
