Major Whittle in City of Waukegan - late 19th Century

from My Life and Sacred Songs, pages 168-169:

"The first evening there was no marked result. Although it rained hard, the meeting on the second evening was twice as large. As Mr. Bliss sang his own ' Almost Persuaded,' with a heart yearning to bring wavering ones to decision for Christ, the impression was so irresistible that many arose while he sang, unable to withhold their craving for the help of prayer. That night there was the joy in Waukegan of those who had come to Christ with full purpose of heart, and had found the new bliss of accepting His love.
