This country is all on fire
Tue 30 Mar 1784: I preached in the new preaching-house at Henley Green, but this was far too small to hold the congregation. Indeed this country is all on fire, and the flame is still spreading from village to village. The preaching-house at Newcastle just held the congregation, many being kept away by the election, especially the gentry. But still the poor heard the gospel preached, and received it with all readiness of mind.
