The dear Grants, the ex-clergymen, were with us at Guelph. They are very dear faithful young men; quite unpretending and intelligent, are both fully in the work, and have given up everything for the Lord’s sake. One of them, Robert, and I preached in the little island I spoke of above, on the Sunday at Guelph; the people of the town came down in great numbers, having heard that we were to have a baptism, which was a mistake; but I trust there was no mistake in what they heard at the island. At the same time dear Bennett, of Brantford, was preaching in the town and the other Grant in another place.
