I Heard Spurgeon

A selection from a letter by Frances Ridley Havergal to her sister, Maria, written in the summer of 1867:

I heard Spurgeon on Sunday A.M. Magnificant! I don’t recollect ever hearing anything finer… That “Tabernacle” is certainly one of the most remarkable sights in the world—the end of the season and London half empty, but it was thronged, and always is, twice every Sunday; and more than half are men, and intellectual-looking ones too.

Letters by the Late Frances Ridley Havergal, edited by her sister, Maria V. G. Havergal, first published in 1885, reprinted by Kessinger Publishing, p. 64.
