Notes for William Adams, Jr. : He attended a revival meeting at Bethel church, Attala county. The Service was going well and there were many giving testimonials and spiritual experiences.William stood and started speaking as he approached the alter.A man who did not know him turned to his wife and said " that is the ugliest man I ever saw."
When William finished his talk and returned to his sat the man said to his wife" that is the most handsomest man I ever saw".
It was said that what came from the soul brought beauty with the message.
From an interview Brownie Carson did with Clifton Adams.
