Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona

I take the pleasure of writing few lines to you, hoping they will find you all quite well as we are at present. It’s a very fine day and we are having a very nice quiet Sabbath. Our preacher is Rev. John Evans (Llandiloes). The text was first chapter John, 46th verse, Nathaniel saying can there be any good thing come out of Nazareth. Philip said come and see. This was a question of doubt. Our School no. 93. Frances is going to do something in a soiree in the Vane Hall tomorrow night (Monday), accompany on the piano to some young ladies singing and mandolin playing. Laura P [?] is one.

Vaughan Owen has come very well again. D Vaughan Owen is one of the London Council now. He must be very large in his way. Give our best love to David. Grand wedding here last Wednesday at Red Lion. They’ve gone to Walsall to live. So I have not much news. The monthly meeting was held in our chapel last Thursday. E. Parry (Newtown) preached at night. The text was Matthew 13th chapter, 18 verse – ‘hear ye the parable of the sower’.

So I must conclude with our very best love to all and dear children. May God be with all. From Father, Mother & Frances.

Excuse short letter.
