James Ogilvie was the minister of the Kirk in 1741. He wrote, 'Mr Whitefield has revived in this city a just sense and concern for the great things of religion. I often think that the Lord sent him here to teach me how to preach, and especially how to suffer. His attachment to no party, but to Christ, appears to be a particular excellency in him. While he stayed among us he answered our expectations so much that he has scarce more friends anywhere than here, where at first almost all were against him. The Word came with so much power that I hope several of different denominations will bless the Lord forever that they ever heard him.
