Peterhead (1863)

The Revival Newspaper reported 'such a season of awakening as has never before been witnessed in Peterhead . . . every Sabbath night hundreds go away that cannot get in'.'' Usually, two meetings were held each evening of her campaign. First, there was a public service of worship that was followed by a smaller gathering for 'anxious inquirers'

The woman concerned was a Miss Graham, a young evangelist from Edinburgh, who went to Peterhead in October 1863 and returned the following year.

For more information see, 'When the Lord Walked the Land,' by Kenneth Jeffrey p236. Mr Jeffrey states that Peterhead did not receive the revival of 1859.
