[No Title]
(Column 1)
Summary: The Presbyterian church revival in Waynesboro has achieved great success amongst both the white and black populations.
Origin of Article: Char. Advocate
Full Text of Article:

The revival in the Presbyserian [sic] Church of Waynesboro, of which we made mention a month ago, still continues in interest and accessions. On Sunday last thirty-seven were admitted to church membership, at least one-half of whom were over thirty years of age,heads of families and leading citizens of that community. As many more, it is expected, will unite themselves with the church at the next Lord's Supper. Among the colored population of the village, similar evidence of the influence of the spirit are manifest.
