Dear Lizzie Ann & David, J.M & Maglona
We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping to find you quite well as it leaves us all at present. We hope that little Maglona's cold is better, and that J.M is quite well. Tell him about Dada and Nain and Hai. Dear little boy I should like to see him. Dear Lizzie Ann I hope you will excuse lead pencil but my meaning is the same, it conveys our very best love to you all.
Dear Lizzie Ann we are having a very pleasant Sunday here today. It's very fine and our preacher is Mr Williams, and he read this morning the second chapter of the Ephesians and the text was the first epistle to the Corinithians, 15th chapter, 10th verse - 'but by the Grace of God I am what I am' and I trieed to write as much as ever I could of his sermon and said many very good things about the Grace of God. You see dear Lizzie Ann that I have taken a new plan, that is to write in a book as much as ever I can of the sermon so that I may look at it again, and I find it very profitable, besides that it keep me awake and lively all through the service, also my memory is a very bad one and this helps very much.
Dear Lizzie Ann & David we have not very much news to tell you this time. With our very best love to you all.
From Father, Mother & Frances.
May the blessing of God be with you all. Amen.
