Theatre, Southampton (1862)

We had a blessed meeting at Southampton. Mr Elwin and I went out in the afternoon and spoke in the avenue (park), a place almost as much thronged as Hyde Park. About three hundred paid attention to the blessed gospel. In the evening the theatre was crowded; it will hold about a thousand. In the after-meeting there were between fifty and sixty, apparently in great distress about their souls. The stage and the little room both were full of anxious ones, sobbing under a sense of their guilt. Mr Elwin remarked that the blessing was equal to any meeting he had seen in London.
