Laleston (1859)

At Laleston there were thirteen converts, one a roguish urchin of thirteen. A mother in Israel took him by the scruff of his neck, and turned him out, saying, *'Out with you! you have stopped behind to indulge your mischief." The youngster thus cast out of the synagogue became a preacher, while another of the converts forsook his vows, marrying a worldling, and making shipwreck of the faith. In the 1905 Revival, at Resolven, this backslider, after years of heathenism, was again convicted and brought back into the fold by a sermon from the preacher, who, as a little lad, sat by his side in 1859 on the penitent form at Laleston.

From, 'The '59 Revival', by  J J Morgan, page 100.
