down upon us, and O, what a meeting; sinners were converted,
believers sanctified. The meeting lasted long after the preaching
began in the evening. People came from all parts of the ground.
There I first met Mr. and Mrs. Martyr, of Philadelphia, who
afterwards were very good friends to me. They are both now in
