Roberts, Revival Literature: An Annotated Bibliography no. 3771. "An extremely important volume on the 1859 awakening in Wales."

The author, John James Morgan, was the son of the evangelist David Morgan. The 1904-5 awakening in Wales stirred interest in that of 1859, and the author gives a vivid account of it. He states that it was of some difficulty to make the revival "speak English," because the Welsh character of it was so strong. "The atmosphere and characteristics of the movement were so distinctively and intensely Welsh, that this attempt might never have reached this point of consummation were it not for the urgent request of the General Assembly of the Church I have the honour of belonging to [Calvinistic Methodists].
