Went to Preston Convention—great! Messages [in tongues] and interpretations: The Good Friday meetings were held in a large, classic “shoe-box”-shaped hall, with a raised stage at the forward end, and a balcony running round, left, rear centre, and right. Mrs. Wood, Audrey and I sat on the balcony, to the left, about half-way along, on this, the first Preston Convention that I went to, with the bulk of the congregation in the main floor-area below. This was a time when spiritual things were still new and wonderful to me. Not recorded here, is a phenomenon that occurred, which left me stunned and amazed. Mrs. Wood told me afterwards that it was “singing in the Spirit”, with some people singing in tongues on a sustained note and others singing harmonies or a succession of notes in harmony, with the sound swelling and rippling like waves. It felt like I was in heaven.

I got my receipt from Clacton: See Sunday 23rd January 1966 for more information.
136, Clee Rd.,
I got my receipt from Clacton on
Thursday morning, and you know I asked them
if I could be in the same chalet as you and Peter
they said they can arrange it if I let them
know your receipt reference number, so could
you let me know what they are as soon as you
can then I can send it off. Thanks.
I hitch-hiked over on Thursday and
came through Sheffield I came right through
the city so I couldn’t resist paying a visit
to the bogs in Fitzallan Square.
Went round to Jenny’s as soon as I got
here, but she wasn’t in. I’m rather glad really,
but I’m dead well known in their street, as
two girls came up to me even before I was
near Jenny’s house, and they knew who
I was and where I’d come from and who
I wanted to see and everything. I shan’t go
round again though as they were telling me
one or two things about her I didn’t
Please let me have those reference numbers
PS: I only need £5/5s more for the
conference. Praise the Lord! I only
started praying for the £12/5s not quite
3 weeks ago. Isn’t that wonderful!
