Parsons, George

Transcription of Extract of G. Parsons Journal – Burton Circuit 1822

Sunday June 30, at Burton prayer meeting at 7 in the morning.  At 10 held a band meeting. At 2 spoke in the room at Bond-end, Burton; a very hard time. At 6 in the evening spoke again; a very large congregation. The Lord made bare his arm, 6 were in trouble, and 2 professed to find peace.

July 4. At Wood Mill; here the work is going on well; 25 in society. On the 5th visited the friends, and a widow woman upwards of eighty years of age. She was in distress on account of her soul. I talked with her, we then prayed, and the Lord blessed her soul, and made her happy in his love.

July 7. at Litchfield; had a good time; souls were in distress, 2 got into liberty, and joined the society. Praise the Lord.
