Primitive Methodists - Tunstall (1862)

On Sunday, Jan. 12, I spoke twice at the Primitive Methodist chapel, Tunstall, to large crowds. I spoke four nights in that town, and the presence of the Lord was with us. Cries of distress every night went up to heaven, like the poor gaoler's, "What must I do to be saved " Rough men and women crying like little children; husbands and wives kneel­ing down together before God on account of their sins. But they were pointed to the Lamb that was slain; and oh, what a sight to see these great big men clapping their hands and praising God for his pardoning love, who a few hours before had been blaspheming his name. About 300 names were taken in the four nights and many of these the worst of characters; but not one too vile for Christ. What a Saviour! He can save gamblers and harlots now. Glory to his name: his blood has still virtue in it. I was not so well in body, but the Lord stood by me, and there was a good work at Tunstall.
