“English brigades look out: It was with feelings of sincere regret that we met together for our parting meeting in Coleraine School on Thursday night. God has been very present in our midst during the stay of the Van in this parish. Many at first were prejudiced against the C.A., but as time went on prejucide was broken down, and a feeling of intese desire for the work of God took its place. Coleraine is a tough place to work, but C.A. people are tough to, and can stand tough work. Most nights there has been a large attendance, especially on the night of the Lecture on C.A. work, nearly 450 being crowded into the room. The Rector and Curate have attended every night, and helped greatly in the Meetings, the Curate kindly working the Lantern for us when needed. The Gospel message has been delivered simply and earnestly, and many have professed to find blessing. A Gazette brigade has been formed, who are determined to win the Banner, so look out English Brigades. The Van has now removed to the next parish, where we hope the work will be equally blessed. ”
