Its story is told in this volume by Mr. "Williams, in a way calculated to impress and captivate all readers. The book abounds with striking incidents, pithy sayings, and vivid sketches of character." —7^e Christian. "Abounding in stories of the sufferings of early Methodists in Wales. Welshmen are of a fiery nature and both for the truth and against it they were very earnest, hence the battle grew warm and proceeded to extremities The Lord was with His own, and therefore they triumphed in the conflict, and left Wales one of the most religious nations under heaven. This work is full of interest."—Sword and Trowel.
