My dear Lizzie Ann and David

We now take the pleasure of writing these few lines to you hoping that they will find you all quite well as we are all quite well today - only Frances is troubled a little with neuralgia but many are complaining of the same thing.

Mamma arrived home quite safe and in good spirits. She had quite a pleasant journey and she has taken a good rest today, and she is going to Chapel tonight. There is a great favourite of hers preaching - Mr Parry of Newtown. The text this morning was in Matthew - the words - 'Thy kingdom come'. We are hoping that baby is quite well, and I do hope dear Lizzie Ann that you will feel that the Lord is with you, although you cannot go the means of Grace as often as you would wish - but the promise is 'I will be with thee, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee' and I do hope that this will be your happy experience continually.

Frances was very successful on Friday with the Wesleyan Eisteddfod. You shall have a paper to see. Tell Johnny that we are remembering very much to him, and I hope that he is a good young man and that anything that he can do for you dear Lizzie I hope he will do it and that you will all be very comfortable.

They buried the Rev. R. Owen - Pennal - on Friday. He had a stroke a fortnight before. It was a very large funeral in Machynlleth cemetery. So we have not much news to tell you now but Frances and Mamma will write and tell you all. So I conclude with our very best love to you all from your dear Father and Mother & Frances. May the blessing of God be with you all. Amen
