Peterhead (1874)



Next to Drumblade, the greatest work I have seen has been at Cornhill, in Banffshire, where one night at least two hundred remained for conversation in the Free Church. Some of them had come about eight miles to the meeting, and this after a good day's work. There must be deep concern before men would come that distance. We had to speak with the anxious in parties of twelve and fifteen, and even then could not overtake all.

Besides places already mentioned in former letters, there has been blessing at Culsamond, Oyne, Leslie, Forgue, New
Deer, Peterhead, and doubtless elsewhere in the county; while at Logie Pert, in Kincardineshire, there has been a great and
blessed work.

We had a time of much quickening to believers with the visits of Henry Varley, who came most opportunely after the work of awakening and conversion at the time of the visit of Messrs Daniels, Stewart, and others.

There is a deep and warm feeling of expectancy for the visit of Messrs Moody and Sankey, that is, we trust, a sign of
much blessing coming with them.
