Paul-C and I have been collaborating on a Personal Book of The Life of Howell Harris by Hugh J. Hughes. We used Microsoft's SkyDrive to allow us both to edit the same document, which worked well. It's a lengthy book - more than 150,000 words and more than 450 pages. Howell Harris was a contemporary of the Wesley brothers and George Whitfield, and knew all three men well. The original scan is here.

Title: The Life of Howell Harris 
Author: Hughes, Hugh J.
Type: Monograph
Language: English
Subject Heading: Harris, Howell,--1714-1773.
Subject Heading: Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church--Wales--Clergy --Biography
Publisher: William Jones, 1892

Description: Howell Harris, with Daniel Rowland, were two of the Great Awakening’s pioneer preachers, who laid the foundations of the Calvinistic Methodist movement in Wales. Whereas Daniel Rowland ministered mainly in one place, at Llangeitho, Howell Harris, who was never ordained, itinerated all over Wales as a lay ‘exhorter’ from his home in Trevecca. During his varied activities he established the controversial Christian community at Trevecca. He co-operated with the Countess of Huntingdon in establishing a college to train students for the Christian ministry and set up societies all over the principality. His life was not without controversy however, and a rift developed between him and Daniel Rowland, which had an adverse effect upon the revival for some years; but Harris, without a doubt, was a man greatly used by God in the furtherance of the gospel during the 18th century revival in Wales. He died in 1773 and, according to the Countess of Huntingdon, his funeral was attended by 20,000 people, surely revealing a nation’s esteem of this great man.
