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 well and that your cold and babies is better by now. We are all pretty well today but it is a very cold and frosty day here. The fireside is a very fine place. Our school no. 85. Mr Davies is our preacher today. I failed to go to the service this morning therefore I have not a word to send you today. I am sorry.
We had a postcard from Johnny this morning and they are quite well. There are a great many people suffering from influenza about here. All being well we have Principle Rhys of Aberystwyth preaching for us next Sunday. Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises to God and the prisoners heard them although their feet were fast in the stocks, and we see that God will go very far to help and comfort his children, but we see that the poor ? was awakened by an earthquake so you see that there was joy to one and terror to the other, and Paul ..? do thyself no harm for we are all here and then he called for a light and sprang in and came trembling and said men and brethren what must I do to be saved, and Paul said believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved in this house, and he took them to the house the same night and washed their stripes and set meat before them re ..? with all his love. Excuse me it is a dictation from memory. May the blessing of God be with you all. Amen.
From dear Father & Mother & Sister M, E, Fr
Tell the children to be very good, Taid says.
