We were exceedingly fortunate in having as preachers in our meetings and workers among the soldiers at Winchester, besides our chaplains, such men as Drs. Wm. J. Hoge, Wm. F. Broaddus, J. A. Broadus, J. L Burrows, etc., and there was every prospect of a general revival among the troops around Winchester, when we took up the line of march across the mountains.
