Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona

We take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you dear Lizzie Ann are much better and David and the children quite well as we are all pretty well. Today we are having a very nice Sabbath day. Our preacher is Rev. R Edwards (Cemmaes). He preached a very good sermon this morning from the second chapter of Collossians - ‘and ye are complete in him’. Our Sunday School no. 87 and we are trying to spend this day again a rest from toil and labour, and hoping that it is a rest to our souls, that is by doing what little we can whether at home or in his house. It matters not much having his Glory in view with your dear little children at your knee. You may teach them something that will give you joy and comfort. Give our very best love to David.

Poor Mr V Owen does not get much better yet but he is very submissive to his heavenly father’s will. We hope he may rise up again. The week night services are very empty without him. You know he had a sigh or amen for everything that was said. So sorry to see in the Goleuad last week that there is a row in Holloway Chapel between the Officers. There is a deputation from the London Monthly Meeting going there to try to make peace. The love of Christ cannot possibly be there. I dare say you know all these cruel men.

Excuse scribble. With our very best love to you all.

From Father, Mother & Frances
