Dear Lizzie Ann and David

I take the pleasure of writing a few lines to you hoping that you both are quite well. I am glad to say that Mamma is a little better by now and hoping that her health will improve a little now. I am quite well and Frances and Johnny. I am glad to say that John gives her a little less trouble now he stops in Pennal all the week. So you see that your mother has a little less to do a week.

Last Thursday our Sunday school was in Towyn for the day and I took half a day. We had a very enjoyable day - it was very fine, but your Mother was not able to go. She is drinking water from Builth Wells (Mr David Evans - Louisa's father the Solicitor). I mean the bottle contains about two gallons. Your Mother thinks that it is doing her good. They were very kind and I thanked them much. The wedding of Miss Nellie is going to take place on Wednesday at 2.30 and Mrs Jones wished me to be with the carriage, so you see I shall be very grand as usual. Mrs Jones spoke of the present and letter she had received from you. We have a very happy Sunday today. J.H. Davies - Welshpool - the tall young man with glasses, you know him, a nice Preacher. The morning text - Hebrew, 12 chapter, 1st verse 'being composed about with so great a cloud of witnesses'.

So dear Lizzie Ann and David we have not much more news to tell you now. May God bless you and keep you ever in his love and beneath the shadow of his great wing for Christ's sake.

From your Father, Mother, Brother and Sister, M & E Lewis
