Dear Lizzie Ann

I now take the pleasure of writing to you hoping that you are quite well as this leaves me at present. Your Mother does not complain so much these days and Frances and Johnny are quite well and sending their very best love to you. Dear Lizzie Ann you will have a visitor to come and see you in the person of Mrs Foulkes Jones. She went to London on Friday morning and she said that she was going to see you or you may go and see her as you know where Mr J F Williams lives.

Dear Lizzie Ann we had Mr R Owen - Welshpool - today. The morning text was the 10th chapter of Gospel of John, 9th verse - 'I am the door if any man enter in he shall be saved and shall go in and out, and shall find pasture'. It was a very seasonable sermon I thought indeed. I hope my dear that as much as you are able to go to the means of Grace that you do find real pasture to your soul, because my dear I am aware that London is so great and so different from the country mode of living and fashion. Dear Lizzie Ann our new Minister is a very nice young man and very earnest, and has done a great deal of visiting which will be a very great blessing to many. It will gather the cause together.

Have you been in communication with Mrs Williams Bank, they now reside in some part of London. Dear Lizzie Ann I have not much more to tell you now. May God bless you and keep you, with my very best love to you and from us all.

Your loving father

M Lewis
