Dear Wife, Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Maglona

I take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are all very well as it leaves us at present. We were very glad to have a letter from you this morning and to see that Mamma arrived safe and that she was so well. And how does J.M. like to see Nain, did he know her at the station? Tell him about Dada and Hai. I think about the happy walks we had together. Dear J.M., I shall see him some day again.

It is very stormy here today, rather few in Chapel this morning. I think Mr Williams had neuralgia. He did not go into pulpit to preach, but was by the table. The text was Matthew, 13th chapter, 33 verse about the leaven in the meal. Frances is getting on alright. On Saturday morning Frances had a letter from Anne (Pwllhelli) saying that she was coming by the mail on Saturday night, but we sent a telegram off at once to say that you were not at home and therefore she did not come. Remember us to all our old friends that you may see in Birmingham.

Hoping dear Lizzie Ann that we shall see you by the 4.48 train on Tuesday. Dear Lizzie Ann may God bless you and your dear husband and the little children. Amen. Our Harvest Thanksgiving is tomorrow, 2.30 to 7.30, a service of song from 7 to 7.30 tomorrow night. So we have no more news to tell you this time.

From dear Husband, Father & Sister

X X for J.M & Maglona

Our very best love to you all.
