James Caughey Birkenhead meeting (1842)

On Sabbath night, November 6th, I crossed the river Mersey, to the Cheshire side, walked to the Wesleyan chapel, Woodside, and opened my commission in England, with that text, 2 Peter ii. 9. The above passage has often been a comfort to me in days of temptation, years gone by, and I chose it on this occasion on my own behalf and was much comforted. An influence from God evidently rested upon the people, and could the blow have been repeated, many sinners, I doubt not, would have been saved.
