Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM, Lona and babby

We take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are all quite well as it leaves us at present pretty well. Frances is rather bad with a cold. She is in bed nearly all day. Mamma is middling. I am very well.

Well dear Lizzie Ann the sin of bad language and drunkenness is driven out of Town to a large degree. This is accounted for through the Revival. They are praying everywhere. It’s a blessed time to live in. Our Sunday School 118. I had in my class eleven young men. It was a very cheerful sight. We have a student preaching today, a very good one, and large congregation. Hoping that this great Revival has reached to Birmingham. Tell JM & Lona to be very good children.

So I have no more news to tell you at present. May God bless you all. Amen.

Love to all from

Father, Mother & Frances
