"Miss Green

My dear Benefactress,

I wrote you a letter before which I believe you have received. I wrote in it about me, my parents, sisters and brothers. We are all well. In the parish we live there are three girls schools and three boys schools. Father has meetings in these schools on Sunday and weekday afternoons. The Christian women have a good meeting regularly on Sunday afternoons. There are some converts admitted to the churches as the result of these meetings. I attended the Sunday meetings regularly in my vacation Father preaches the sermon on every Sunday in the church. Some idolators also come to hear the sermon.

I taught my little sisters songs and Bible verses while I was at home for vacation. My parents, sisters and I pray for you always. -

Yours Truly

Maria Eliatamby"
