"The people there are not men but devils."
Mon. 8. Aug 1743 Upon mention made of my design to preach here, a zealous woman warmly replied, ‘What! At Snowsfields! Will Mr. Wesley preach at Snowsfields? Surely he will not do it! Why, there is not such another place in all the town. The people there are not men but devils.’ However, I resolved to try if God was not stronger than them. So this evening I preached there on that Scripture, Jesus said, ‘They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. I came, not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.’
