Maesteg (1859)

t was at Twrgwyn that we were told of a father, flanked by two daughters on the penitent form. "Are these all the children? " asked David Morgan. " No; I have five sons in the South." " Where there? " " Two at Aberavon, and three at Maesteg." The Revivalist then engaged in intensely earnest prayer for their conversion.

He was at the time on the w^ay to Glamorganshire, and among the fifteen converts at Aberavon were the two brothers. Identifying them, he prayed again for the three still outside the fold. He preached at Maesteg next morning, and among the twenty-four who threw down their weapons of rebellion were the remaining three.
