Longley Green (1861)

In the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel, the Spirit of the Lord has deeply im­pressed the minds of many. One man, about thirty-six years of age, trembling from head to feet, and weeping, desired me to pray with him: we besought the Lord for him, he too crying for mercy. He was enabled in a measure to believe, went home, and that same night was fully set at liberty. The next time I saw him every feature in his countenance was lit up with joy, and. clasping my hand he said, "I feel as though every bit of flesh upon my body was new! All my sins are gone! I am happy! Another trophy of the cross was a woman about the middle age, in deep sorrow under the word, during a soul-reviving prayer-meeting. Unable to restrain her feelings, she fell upon her knees, and with anguish of soul, cried earnestly to the Lord. I reminded her of the love of Jesus, his kind invitation, "Come unto me all ye that are weary, and heavy laden, and I will give you rest,' and as we sang together,

"There is a Fountain filled with blood," &c.,

she cried out, "Lord, I believe! help thou mine unbelief." She went away comforted, but could not fully rely upon Christ for a present salvation. On the following day she was agonising, but now she rejoices in her dear Lord. Many of the people are eager for the return of such blessed privileges. The attendance at the week-night services is largely increased, and the people are unwilling to separate. Pray for us.U, E.

Additional Information

I do not know exactly where the chapel is, but I know it is north west of the village along an unnamed track. It is now a private house.
