Dear Lizzie Ann

We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you, hoping that you are much better, and David and babby are quite well. Glad to see that you are getting better. We shall have finer weather now, and by the blessing of God you will be soon strong again. We are very well on the whole. John Maurice is very well and running about very much. Frances was very successful in Pennal on Friday night. She won the first prize, that was a silver teapot and five shillings, and very much praise in the bargain. She is going to be very busy now with Easter.

Our preacher today is Mr Ernest Jones of Barmouth - a very good one. The text was Luke, chapter 13, verse 34 - Christ weeping over Jerusalem. Also chapter 19, verses 41 & 42 - you may look for them. Our school numbered 101 today for the first time. Poor Mrs Ed. Rees died very suddenly on Friday morning. They bury her on Tuesday. I have not much news this time. May God be with you all.

With our very best love to you all from

Father, Mother, John M and Frances
