Words of the Great Awakening

When I saw Mr.Whitefield come upon the scaffold (platform),he looked almost angelica (like an angel)....And my hearing how God was with him everywhere as he came along,it solemnized (made serious) my mind and put me into a trembling fear before he began to the preach; for he looked as if he was clothed with authority from the Great God...and my hearing him preach gave me a heart wound.
