On Wednesday, the 26th, being the day on which the weekly prayer meeting at Twatt is held, there was a very large attendance, the Free church being filled in every part. The Reverend Mr Garson began the service by praise and prayer after which the Reverend Mr Souter gave a narrative of what had come under his observation in Sanday and Deerness. A very deep impression seemed to be made by the recital of the circumstance in attending the awakening in both places mentioned, several being in tears and others not able to give utterance to their feelings. Many young people were present and some of the boys seem much moved.
