Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona

We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are all well as it leaves us at present fairly well. It is a fine day and we have every thing to make us comfortable and happy. We ought to feel very thankful to our heavenly father for all his mercies to us. Our preacher today is Rev. E. Edwards (Cemmaes). Not a very bright one but I enjoyed his sermon very much as I tried to put it down. The text was 2nd Timothy, 3rd chapter, 16 & 17th verses. He spoke a good deal about the man of God being well furnished and that it helps to keep from sin and trouble.

I hope dear Lizzie Ann that you have been able to go to Dr Torry’s meetings, if it was only to hear the singing. There is nothing very startling about here now. Our School no. 102. I enjoyed myself very much teaching a class of young ladies. I don’t know where I go on Sunday when I go to School. I try to make myself ready to go anywhere. I felt today like this – that there was work to do and I felt that by his strength I should be able to do something which would be well pleasing in his sight, oh such a privilege.

Well dear I conclude with our very best love to you all.
