Dear Lizzie Ann

I now take the pleasure of writing a few lines to you hoping that they will find you quite well as it leaves me at present, and we are all pretty well.

Mamma is complaining with rheumatics in her arm today but we hope she will be better soon. Frances is very good and attentive to her mother and Johnny is also better. Dear Lizzie Ann it is a world of labour and trial and temptation but God has promised that he will be with us and help us through all. I hope that you have some verse or thought brought to your mind that does help and sustain you every day.

Dear Lizzie Ann the everyday life and scenery in very different in London to that of Machynlleth and you see much, but I hope my dear that you see Jesus in his dying love. May God bless you every day and hour. My dear remember we know not of the day nor the hour in which the son of man cometh.

Mr W.S. Jones is preaching with us today. The morning text was Ephesians, 1st chapter, 7th verse - 'in whom we have redemption through his blood'. All the old friends are kindly remembering to you, E.L. Evans especially. I have no more at present. Dear Lizzie Ann. Goodbye - your Father.

M Lewis
