Got C[orrespondence] Course back from Jones: Here is the covering letter from David Jones, written “1/8/66”, i.e. 1st August 1966, enclosing the question sheet from the Correspondence Course on Soulwinning, postmarked with “BLACKPOOL, LANCS. 1.30 PM 2 AUG 1966” and an advertisement for Blackpool Illuminations. (See Tuesday 8th March 1966 for more information about the Soulwinning Course.)
How different the tone of this letter is, from the one received on Wednesday 5th January 1966! My dealings with Jones during the school summer holidays were conducted by post: I don’t recall any visit of Jones to my house; and I was presumably still persona non grata in the Jones household after The Apple Incident three years before.
Alec Tee was Scottish, an Elim minister and evangelist who had a campaign in a marquee in a field at South Shore, Blackpool. He prayed for the sick in these meetings. I greatly amused the Wood household with my imitations of him.
Jessie and Mary were residents at Lakeland View, Laidleys Walk, Fleetwood, a home for severely disabled people. They attended our church, being mainly pushed there in wheelchairs by volunteers from the church. People from the church also went to Lakeland View to hold services for the residents from time to time.
