Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona

We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping you are all quite well.

Mamma is complaining rather of rheumatic today, it is the change in the weather. Frances's cold is better, I am quite well myself.

We had a letter from Johnny saying that he thought of coming home at the end of this week as things are so slack in London at present.

Dear Lizzie Ann we are having a very pleasant Sunday morning service commenced by 3 young girls repeating 15 chapter of St. John. They did it very well. Then the Intermediates were questioned on the history of Solomon in the first Book of Kings. Then we had an address by Mrs Jones Bryngoronwy, Llanwrin. It was about establishing of Sunday Schools a hundred years ago by Griffith Jones Llandowror, Daniel Rowlands Llangeitho, Charles of Bala and others. Then in the afternoon the meeting commenced by a young boy repeating 91st Psalm and then an address by the Chairman and then the adults were questioned on the 6 Chapter Romans and that was very interesting for myself. We sang all Sankey's Hymns all day.

Mamma is coming to chapel tonight. We are singing the anthem "Sun of My Soul" and sermon. So you see my Dear that we have many privileges today. But I hope to enjoy some of it yet out of my Book. I hope dear that you and David with your dear little children. God is very near to all those that seek him. May this be your happy experience for Jesus sake.

Excuse my short letter. With dearest love to all

From father, mother, Frances
