soldier (mentioned in "My Life and Sacred Songs") in London

from My Life and Sacred Songs, page 65:

A wild young soldier was induced to attend a Gospel meeting in London. As he entered, the congregation was singing " Are you coming Home to-night ? " The song made a deep impression upon him. He came back the next night, and he continued to attend until he was saved. " I had to come," he said ; " that hymn would not let me stay away. I could not sleep at night. All night long that question of the song, both in the words and music, kept returning to me, demanding an answer : ' Are you coming Home to-night ? ' "
