side of the room (her mother had put her to bed), praying for the
Lord to bless her. The two boys had got up and come down, and
they were praying that the Lord would bless them. I said, "Oh,
Lord, what will I do? I have no help but Thee only. Help,
Lord!" I thought if 1 only had somebody to sing; but there was
nobody—only Archie and I; and we had got so hoarse that we
could not do much. But it was beautiful just to see God do it all!
The whole five of them were converted that night. Oh, what
a time. And so we were into it till about twelve or one o'clock.
Then I slipped off and lay down a little while.
The news got out through the neighborhood, so they sent for
me to come to another house next day, about a mile and a half
away. Old man Huff hitched up his team, and he and his
nephew and Archie and I went over to the neighbor's This man
was a very moral kind of a man. He had been seeking the Lord,
but he had got a little discouraged, so they thought if I would go

I got there about four o'clock in the afternoon. We talked
and had a pleasant time, and had supper; and I thought we would
have prayers after awhile. Well, about eight o'clock one or two
persons came in, neighbors; that made five or six of us.
"Dear me," I thought to myself, "I have not strength to
talk any longer, so I will just give out a hymn, and we will sing
and have prayers."
So I did, and we got down to pray. I asked somebody to
pray. While we were praying, three or four more came in.
When we got through that prayer some one else struck in, and
two or three more came in; so we had twelve or thirteen persons,
packed in like sardines in a box. And pretty soon this man that
had been seeking, cried out for salvation. Oh, how he prayed!
It was not long till he began to believe; and what always follows
earnest faith is victory. When he shouted victory it struck terror
to the others that were not converted, and that night there were
five or six converted in that house Oh! what a victory!
Next day we visited round through the neighborhood. How
the shouts of praise and hallelujah to God seemed to be every¬
where we went. So I went back to church, for I did not get any
rest there, and we went on two or three weeks longer. From there
I went to Millville, N. J., with similar results. I remember one
