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

We take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are all quite well as it leaves us all at present except Mamma. She has a bad cold but she is better. Frances is quite well. I am very well myself. Dear Lizzie Ann I was in Chapel this morning and I wrote so much of the sermon, hoping that you will be able to read it and gather some word from it. I went to Chapel and forgot to take my copy book, but didn’t I jump out again for it. I have gone to feel like that I feel afraid of being listening to a sermon and not putting something down, for it is such a help to remember something of the message which God send through his servant to me and to us all. I enjoyed the Sunday School.

I was thinking of you, how sweetly you used to enjoy the School, but never mind dear, the promise is I will be with thee to keep thee in all thy ways. I commenced the School and I felt I must pray for all the children that had been brought up in our Sunday School, that God would bless them at that hour with sweet recollections. He has promised to answer prayer. Blessed be his name. Amen.

With our very best love to you all.

From Father & Mother & Sister M, E, Fr.

We should be glad to see you soon.
