1647

1647. Duckenfield-Manchester
George Fox began to preach his doctrine. “And I heard,” he says, “of a woman in Lancashire that had fasted two and twenty days; and I travelled to see her; but when I came to her I saw that she was under a temptation, and when I had spoken to her what I had from the Lord I left her; her father being one high in profession. And passing on I went among the professors at Duckenfield and Manchester, where I stayed awhile and declared the truth among them.” (Fox’s Journal.)(7)
