For the Seville Sabbath School
My dear young friends
We had quite a
happy surprize the other
afternoon. Brother Henry
came down and taking
quite a number of letters
from his pocket handed
them to us saying these I
brought from Cal. and I have
one more {drawing out another
This is for [u]Our[/u] sabbath
school at home have sent
you $20.00--- How glad we
were to have it - to feel that
it was really $20.00 that had
come in pennies - dimes
and 25 ct pieces from the
children and young people

who seem so near and dear to
us. I really do not keep up
with the changes brought by
the years which have gone
since that Sabbath when I
heard my precious class for
the last time - at least for a
long time. But if I were to
come in upon you - it seems
the only change would be found
to be that those then children
are now putting on manhood
and woman-hood. Well shall
I tell you what we hope to do
with your money? Perhaps
Father or some of our family
have already told you we are
very anxious to build a new
school house for the Boarding
School. Have already written
to Dr Ellinwood the secretary
of the Board of Missions to know
if we may do so - and we hope
very much in four of five
weeks to get a letter telling us
we may. Well the Board is
very much in debt and we
do not expect they will let us
have nearly all the money we
need for it but we said if
they would send us something

[Note: Letter concludes sideways on page one]
I sometimes find myself counting the years
until I may enjoy a home visit - perhaps in
three more if I
live I may see
you in the Seville
Church. But if
we do not meet
here we may
hope to be togeth
er sometime
on the other side
of the river
M- Noyes



塞维利亚安息日学
我亲爱的年轻朋友们
我们有很多
快乐惊喜对方
下午。亨利弟兄
下来并采取
相当多的字母
从他的口袋里递过来
他们对我们说这些我
从加利福尼亚带来,我有
一个又画出另一个
这是为了我们的安息日
家里的学校已经送
你 20.00 美元---我们真高兴
必须拥有它——去感受
真的是 20.00 美元
进来便士 - 角钱
和 25 美分的
儿童和青少年

谁似乎如此亲近和亲爱的
我们。我真的跟不上
随着带来的变化
过去的岁月
自从那个安息日我
听了我宝贵的课
最后一次——至少是一次
很久。但如果我要
来找你——看来
唯一的变化会被发现
成为那些当时的孩子
现在正在穿上男子气概
和女人罩。那么应该
我告诉你我们希望做什么
用你的钱?也许
父亲或我们的一些家人
已经告诉过你我们是
非常急于建一个新的
寄宿学校
学校。已经写了
致秘书艾林伍德博士
传道部的要知道
如果我们可以这样做——我们希望
非常有五分之四
几周收到一封信告诉我们
我们可能会。那么董事会是
负债累累,我们
不要指望他们会让我们
几乎拥有我们所有的钱
需要它,但我们说如果
他们会给我们寄一些东西

[注:信在第一页结束]
我有时发现自己数着岁月
直到我可以享受一次家访——也许在
如果我再多三个
我可能会看到
你在塞维利亚
教会。但如果
我们不见面
在这里我们可以
希望在一起
有时
另一方面
河流的
