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

We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are quite well as we are pretty well at present. We are expecting to see you about the end of this week being the Lord's will. Mr Idris Jones is our preacher today. School 65.

Dear Lizzie Ann poor Revd Owen Newyln died very sudden on Thursday about 7pm and they were obliged to bury him Sunday. There was a thousand people in the funeral. I never saw such a one in Machynlleth, and there is another house in great trouble. Richard Jones . - Tailor (Dicko) had an operation on Friday and he died on Saturday evening. So you see that there is trouble in our town but you must cheer up. Dear, we shall be so glad to see you and all the dear children and Mr Hughes. I shall be at the station with the trap. So we conclude with our very best love to all.

From Father, Mother & Sister.

M, E, Fr
