Yarmouth circuit prospered abundantly. At the Conference of 1833 it contained only three hundred members, and employed but two travelling preachers, Messrs. Tetley and Bowthrop; but during the year a gracious revival of religion took place, and many sinners were converted to God. Many new places were opened by preaching in the open air. Many of the local preachers, being zealous for the Lord of hosts, laboured abundantly, frequently walking twenty or thirty miles on the Lord's day, and preaching twice; and their efforts were successful to an encouraging extent.
