He shall see a sight

... Let the preacher who will thoroughly forget himself and remember no individuality but one, and no eloquence but one, stand up before four thousand men and women at the Britannia Theatre any Sunday night, recounting that narrative to them as fellow creatures, and he shall see a sight!

A reminder from Charles Dickens to not get distracted by elaborate halls and large crowds, but to remember the power of the Gospel story that speaks of the 'one' who impacted the mass through the compassionate embrace of the individual.
