Roberts, Revival Literature: An Annotated Bibliography no. 4887. "A biography of William Montgomery Speers, 1832-1906, with a view of the revival of 1859."

Robert Sibbett (1868-1941), "had a distinguished career as a journalist on some leading newspapers in Ulster, and also was a local historian, notably as official historian of the Orange Order...In 1909 he marked the fiftieth anniversary of the Great Revival (of Presbyterianism) by publishing a biography of one of its prominent actors, William Montgomery Speers. Sibbett is described as of 'unfailing gentleness of manner' and 'kindly and friendly disposition', though his opinions on religion were rather acerbically of the Reformed tradition." - Richard Froggatt, Dictionary of Ulster Biography.
