Florence Court (1766)

Some young men from Tonyloman visited the neighbour­hood of Florence-Court, and were instrumental in preparing the way for the preacher. Amongst the first here brought to the saving knowledge of the truth was Miss Shanklin, who became a most devoted Christian. She lived with a sister who was married to Mr Little, a respectable farmer: and being a woman of good sense, exercised a considerable influence in the family circle. The preacher was invited to their house, where he and his successors ever after had a hospitable welcome; the family received much spiritual good: and their sober industrious habits secured the esteem of their neighbours.
