Convinced by strong but artless words

Thur. 14 Jul 1743. I preached at the Lower Spen, seven or eight (northern) miles from Newcastle. John Brown had been obliged to remove hither from Tanfield Lea (I believe by the peculiar providence of God). By his rough and strong, though artless words, many of his neighbours had been much convinced, and began to search the Scriptures as they never had done before; so that they did not seem at all surprised when I declared, ‘He that believeth, hath everlasting life.’
