Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Maglona

We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are all quite well as it leaves us at present. We are having a very nice quiet Sunday. Mr Williams is our preacher. Mamma is coming to chapel tonight and it is sacrament.

The text was this morning Matthew 25th chapter, 24 to 30th verses - 'the man of one talent' - we were warned not to hide it. I felt that the warning was for me as well as us all. This week we are having a great to do on Thursday. They are opening the new schoolroom and an organ recital that is opening the new schoolroom in the afternoon, also a tea meeting. Mrs Davies (Llandinam) is coming to open it and at night the organ recital and like a concert. There are some of the best singers in the Town going to sing, also Frances, and so you see it will be a great affair.

Dear Lizzie Ann remember us all to JM and tell him about us. I was so pleased to see that David had been to General Booth's meeting and to see the great success of so many coming to the penitent form. It is doubtful will one be persuaded to believe anew in our Town this day, but heaven only knows this. I pray God's blessing upon us all so we have no more news this time. With our very best love to you all.

M & E & Fr Lewis.

I looked at that letter several times. May God bless you all amen.
