Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM & Lona ,little David & Frances

We take the pleasure of writing few lines to you hoping that you are all pretty well as we are at present. So sorry to see that dear little David has so much pain, it is certainly his teeth that causes this. It must be very trying for you dear Lizzie Ann. So glad to hear that you are pretty well to bear up. This is the trial in life with the dear little children. May God help you and bless you well. Tell Frances that I have not very much news to tell her only that there is much enquiring when she is coming home. The sopranos have forsaken their seats, we know pretty well why.

Preaching today is a student from Aberystwyth - Evans. School no. 97. It's very hot here today. There is not much news this time. Polly Jones said she was going to write to Frances, so we have nothing more now. It's time for me to go to Chapel. May God bless you all.

From Father & Mother M & E Lewis.

Best love to David, JM & Lona to be good children. X X
