Dear Lizzie Ann, David, Frances, JM & Lona

We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping dear Lizzie Ann that you are better and that Lona’s cold is better, and that all the rest are enjoying pretty good health, and we hope that Frances is in her merry mode with the children. We hope that dear Frances is doing her best to help you dear Lizzie Ann and may it please the Lord to give you renewed health and strength, and I hope the things of God are very precious to your soul. No-one can help like Him, a glorious physician.

The text this morning was Philippians, 2nd chapter, 5th verse – ‘let this mind be in you which was also in Christ-Jesus’. A good congregation. Poor singing. Mrs Jones had to leave the organ, she could not manage it. Frances you know the cause, so it was rather strange to sing without instruments. Our school no. – 82. So we are having the Harmonium into the Chapel for tonight. Your singing meeting was carried on by Mr Rowlands and Miss Rowlands.

It’s a very fine day. Mamma is pretty well. Write soon. David Arter is kindly remembering to you all.

So I conclude with our very best love to you all.

From Father and Mother, M & E Lewis.
