Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM and Lona

We now take the pleasure of writing a few lines to you hoping that you are all quite well as we are pretty well now. Frances is better now. She is able to perform a little on the piano and singing. It is more lively at home when she does this, it is cheerful. We are having a very nice Sunday, fine weather and Mamma is coming to Chapel tonight so you see that we are going on grand.

We have a very good preacher today, a Rev. Wynn Thomas of Aberystwith. A very good preacher, very practical one. He always preaches a short sermon to the children. He spoke out of one of the Epistles to Timothy, that was to endure hardness as good soldiers of the Cross. The text to us was Genesis, 3 Chapter, first to fifth verse - 'the temptation of Adam' and I tried to write down as much as I could of the two sermons so that I may have the pleasure of looking at them again in the week.

Dear Lizzie Ann I was so glad to see that you were at the Sunday school and dear JM with you. Mr David Jones Aberllefeny is rather ill now and poor John Lewis Dolguog Farm died on Friday morning. So dear Lizzie Ann I have not much more news to tell you this time. Our school numbered 89. Mr Rowlands is not in chapel for two or three Sundays poorly. Vaughan Owen has been ill for some time but he is a little better. We are going to have a soiree soon. Frances is the convener of the musical part it. So we have no more to tell you at present. May the blessing of God be with you and David and the dear little children. Tell JM about Nain & Dada & Frances, and dear little Lona. So no more at present.

From Father, Mother & Frances with very best love.
