Melbourn - John Wesley (1761)

Tues. February 3 1761. ? About noon I preached at Harston, five miles beyond Cambridge. Here Mr Berridge's labour has not been in vain. Several have found peace with God; and a more artless, loving people I have seldom seen. They were gathered from all parts. It pleased God to give a manifestation of his love to one woman in the midst of the sermon. She praised God aloud and inflamed many hearts with love and thankfulness.

In the evening I preached at Melbourn, another small town, about four miles from Harston. Many from Harston walked thither, and from the neighbouring villages; and surely God was in the midst of them, just as in our Bristol congregations at the beginning.
