William Haslam Preached - Mt Hawke (1852)

On MountHawke Common several hundred fell on their knees at the same time; it was as if Jesus had walked through the crowds diagonally. It was pointless continuing his sermon so for an hour he ministered to ‘the slain of the Lord’ and then, those interested in more went to the school room. On his arrival there he found that the only way in because of the crowds was through a window. After he had left at 10.00pm the meeting went on day and night for eight days.
