The last day of February, the Revivalist preached at Newcastle- Emlyn the net enclosing a draught of fifty-four souls. He asked one of them, "Have you been with religion before." "No, not exactly with religion," was the hesitating reply. "Have you been under religious impressions at any time?" "I followed John Elias when he preached around here forty years ago, and I have been hiding wounds ever since that time."
