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

We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that you are all quite well as it leaves us all pretty well today. Mamma keeps up pretty well indeed. Ede. Edwards is in the house now and he wishes to be kindly remembered to you. There are several people dying about here now. Mrs Hughes (the Baptist's minister's wife) died after a very short illness. You knew her very well, and a growing girl 20 years of age - a sister of Sal Abrahams, and also a man at Glandulas Fach. He died in a moment. So you see that we have enough of warning to set our houses in order - for thou shalt die and not live. May God help us to be wise for at such an hour as ye think not the son of man cometh.

Uncle Lewis the Guard is very poorly. School no. 94. Our preacher is a very good one today. So we have not much more news to tell you at present. May God's blessing and love be over and with you all. Amen.

From Father & Mother & Sister M, E & Fr

Best love to David and yourself and all the dear children.
