Frank seems to like his work and George Stevens intends to try harder.

My dear Brother

We have been looking out for a letter from you for a long time we were just beginning to think some thing was wrong.  Frank was down on Friday he seems to like his work very well he said he felt very tired by night we had a very good tea at Horton there was a bout one Hundred less there this year than last perhaps that was why those that was there had such a good tea.  We had a letter from M—le on Saturday he seems to enjoy himself.  George Stevens is home he is going to school in Swansea to try and pass this time.  Father was down to Porteynon Chapel last night for their first time he walked down and up and is no worse for it today we are all pretty well have you heard of poor Elizabeth Thomas’s death of G---she died ---sudden in a fever the same as we had.  I think that is all the news good night
