Notes from South Wales.

Well Done, Gowerton,



EVAN ROBERTS' STRANGE MESSAGE. Mr. Evan Roberts addressed two large meet- ings in Liverpool on Tuesday. In the afternoon he was at the Grove-street Welsh Congregational Church at a meeting for ladies, and as a result of his appeal for a greater manifestation of the missionary spirit, three ladies declared their readiness to undertake mission work at home or abroad. The evening meeting was held at Mount Zion Welsh Wesleyan Chapel, which was packed, and 2,000 persons remained outside, although over- flow meetings were held in three other places of worship close by. A sensation was caused by Mr. Roberts declaring that he had a message to deliver that night direct from God. He made several attempts to make the announcement, but was overcome by emotion. The message he had to deliver was with regard to the Free Church of the Welsh. The foundation of the Church was not on the Rock. He had felt the tension of the message throughout the day. He would rather not have said it, but it had to be said by someone. The Rev. John Williams disclaimed having influenced the missioner, and said he thought the dawn of better times had arrived.
