to lecture to saloon keepers and May
bee to exhort and figure as the horrible
example. With them were two young
women singers and a cornet player,
whose playing of Moody and Sankey
tunes Mrs. Maybee accompanied on
the organ. English is witty, and May
bee’s manner is earnest. Neither is an
orator. They talked like old-fashioned
Methodist exhorters. On the first
night they were in Plainfield 113 per
sons signed the pledge, on the next
night 200, and on the next night 250.

that he has perished in the storm.
