Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona

We now take the pleasure of writing a few lines to you hoping that you are quite well as it leaves us all at present. Mamma is very well now and we are looking forward to seeing you all, and to enjoy your company a week today if it is the Lord's will.

It was a very fine day here today and all things are very pleasant. Our preacher today is Mr Morgan (Bow Street), the text was 13th chapter John, 17 verse - 'if yee know these things, happy are yee, happy are yee, if yee do them', and by this Christ meant that it was the highest service we could do. Our school numbered 89, not so bad as now there are so many away for holidays. Frances is very busy today preparing a few young people for a little concert in connexion with Christian Endeavour tomorrow night. She is conducting it. Also this week there is an Eisteddfod at Bow Street and she is singing with parties there on Wednesday night. So you see that she is very busy just now. We saw in the Birmingham Post last week of a horrible affair in your town. I am sure that you were much moved at it. Dear Lizzie Ann it is impossible to ask too much for Grace and strength and wisdom to live in this world, and God's care over us. At the feet of Jesus is a very safe resort. May he help us. So no more at present from your Father and Mother and Frances.

Kindly remember us to David and children.
