Dear Lizzie Ann, David, JM, Lona, little Davy & babby & Frances
We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are all quite well. Glad to have your letter this morning. I make an apology to Frances for not [ ..ting] her home a week today and so glad to see that you are all pretty well. We are very well considering the weather and everything. It has been very rough for days and even today.
News of today, School 85. Edmunds (Tengagnon) is the preacher. Very nice. Much enquiring when is Miss Lewis coming home. Mamma is going out to Chapel tonight. Did you put a cord around the box? We received it on Saturday, a little crushed but all inside safe. I hope dear Lizzie Ann that you will be able to understand what I have written down of the sermon. I enjoyed it very much. I myself will try to meet you dear Frances at the station. It is too stormy and cold for Mamma to go to the station.
So I have no more to tell you at present. May the blessing of the Lord be with you all. Amen. Very best love to all, yes the dear children John & Lona will help Mamma, I know.
From Father & Mother
M & E Children
