John Wesley in Porth Ia - 31 August, 1743
from The Journal of John Wesley, page 116:
I spoke severally with those of the society, who were about one hundred and twenty. Nearly a hundred of these had found peace with God: such is the blessing of being persecuted for righteousness’ sake! As we were going to church at eleven, a large company at the market place welcomed us with a loud huzza: wit as harmless as the ditty sung under my window (composed, one assured me, by a gentlewoman of their own town),
Charles Wesley is come to town,
To try if he can pull the churches down.
