Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona

We now take the pleasure of writing a few lines to you hoping that they will find you all quite well as we are all pretty well at present. We have much rain here today. Our preacher is Mr Davies Berriew. The text was this morning Luke, 1st chapter, 6th verse about Zacharias and Elizabeth being so good and my dear you see that your name is there, and I do think that you are not very far behind the Elizabeth of the bible. You see dear that my opinion of you is very high, never mind I pay you a very high compliment. May the Lord help you all the time to go on, also David and the dear children. May you all be sheltering under that great pavilion that is spoken in the Psalms and in the secret of his Tabernacles will he hide.

Mamma & Francey are pretty well and they want to know when are you coming. We are all in a harry wanting to see the dear children. Our School was only 62 today, but it was very good to be there. The epistle of the Romans is our study - 'but it is possible to have water out of flinty rock especially when God with his hammer of love will strike that flinty rock' - praise his name.

There is nothing startling here now only we are looking forward this week of great rejoicing, Coronation tea for children and a great procession and the Plas Grounds and a banquet at our Hotel. So if there will be rejoicing there is also plenty of work. So we have no more to tell you this time. With our very best love to you all.

From Father, Mother, Sister
