Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona

We take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are all well as it leaves us at present. Mamma’s back is not so well today but she is pretty well on the whole. Frances is very well and very busy just now. On Tuesday night next she is taking part in a play what they call ‘Dick Whittington’. It is in connexion with the Intermediate School. It’s to be a very grand affair, conducted by Mr Meyler. Our School no. today 99. Preacher Rev. E Williams the Pastor. Text 9th chapter John, 25th verse about the man that was born blind. He made some very good remarks. Rich. Jones (Bookseller) has been elected Superintendent, David Owen (Ivy House), Secretary.

It’s a very fine day here today. Poor V. Owen does not get much better. He is in bed all the time. I go often to see him and he is there without a murmur, praising the Lord in his affliction and weakness. It is quite a means of Grace to be in his company. So we have no more to say at present. May the Lord be with you all. This is from your Father, Mother & Sister.

M.E. & Frances

With very best love to you and David and dear children.
