Hello,

We are attempting to figure out how many Americans George Whitefield
preached to during his lifetime.

There is a widely-used statistic around the internet that Whitefield
preached to about 80% (sometimes phrased as four-fifths) of the American
colonists.  However, we can't find the original source of this estimate or
how it was compiled.  Can anyone offer suggestions?  Many thanks

Best,
