Sunday June 21st 1903 The Longest day

Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona

We take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are quite well as we are all pretty well at present. It’s a very fine day here and we have a very happy Sunday. R. Owen (Welshpool) is our preacher and you know that he is always good enough. The text was 15th chapter, Gospel of John, 5th verse – ‘I am the vine, ye are the branches’. It was very plain and very good. I was able to take down his sermon nearly all. Sunday School no. 73 but there are so many away. Maggie from Comm [??] come in now. She wishes to be remembered to you and the children. Glad to hear that you are coming down soon. Poor Ed. Hunt was buried yesterday. He died on Wednesday. I happened to be down the street where he lived on Tuesday morning and some of the neighbours told me that Ed. Hunt was very ill, so I went to see him and I thought that he was very ill. So he wished me to say a word in prayer by his ear, so I did and I was very glad that I obeyed because it was the last chance with him, and this is it – call upon me in the day of trouble and I will hear thee. Hoping in very deed that it was verified in the case of poor Edward.

Dear Lizzie Ann I have not much news this time to tell only what I have said. May the Lord be with you all. Amen. With our very best love to you all.
