27Mar1870, Mr. Liddon's Sermon

LONDON, March 27th, 1870.
B. was in great excitement over Mr. Liddon's sermon in S. James' : the crowds to hear him are tremendous. [FN: I myself can remember that it was necessary, when Liddon preached at St. Paul's in the late eighties, to be there by 1.30 if one wished to have a seat for the service which began at 3.15. Many stood all through the service and an hour and a half before it began.(Editor John Bailey)]
