[William Clayton]

Before I had got properly through one of the town Missions (3 were present) interrupted and threw the meeting into confusion. They disproved nothing but manifested a bad spirit, railing and saying the doctrine was a doctrine of damnation &c. [William?] Jordan the writer was present and what he heard made him tremble. He said the devils which was in the cellar are come here.
