John Lloyd Williams in Marble Arch, London - 15 July, 1883

from J. Lloyd Williams Diaries 1882-1883:

 Crossed over towards the Marble Arch. Close by the Salvation Army was congregated & holding a service. They had officers in uniforms. The prev[iou]s' colours being dark blue with scarlet facings - & standards - they sang & prayed alternately for some time then an officer stepped into the middle and said emphatically that he knew he was saved and also - (from his own experience) that he could live without sin. [...] I am glad to see these efforts & to hear even the sound of Jesus’ name carried among these people but God grant that it is not hypocrisy.
